Average critic rating : 93.0 points



The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape came across as classic and very traditional on this showing, with a firm, structured feel that will benefit from short term cellaring. Offering up notes of kirsch, Asian spice, licorice and ground herbs, it has bright acidity, solid concentration and an elegant, lengthy feel. Give it another couple years and enjoy bottles through 2027.||Located in the northwest part of the appellation, with vines in Cabrieres, Maucoil, and l’Arnesque (limestone soils), Laurent Charvin makes one of the most elegant and seamless Châteauneuf du Papes out there. Opting to produce a single cuvee, the winemaking here is staunchly traditional, with no destemming and fermentation and aging occurring all in concrete tanks. The wines never see a touch of oak whatsoever. In addition to his Châteauneuf du Pape, don’t miss his Côtes du Rhône|. It gives you a touch of the Charvin character for less buck, and can age for over a decade. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
