Critic Notes

A very minerally red with blueberry, chalk and berry aromas and flavors. Full body, salty, chalky and stony character. Impressive. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Score: 93-94/100James Suckling

The 2015 Chauvin, which now belongs to Sylvie Cazes and her family, has a focused, precise bouquet, restrained in style but delivering plenty of tensile red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin on the entry. There is quite a lot of new oak to be absorbed here, although there appears to be adequate fruit underneath and there is a pleasant licorice-tinged finish that bodes well. This will be worth checking out once in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2035

The 2015 Chauvin is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and earthy on the nose with bay leaves, warm plums, underbrush, baked cherries and menthol aromas. The medium to full-bodied mouth is firm and chewy, a little taut but packed with flavor layers and finishing with an herbal lift. Feb 2018, www.robertparker.com

Score: 91-/100Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The 2015 Chauvin is a big, powerful wine. Smoke, grilled herbs, crème de cassis, licorice and lavender give the 2015 much of its distinctive brooding personality. Today, the Chauvin comes across as a bit raw and not fully put together, but it does offer good depth and plenty of potential. Tasted two times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

Score: 89-92/100Antonio Galloni

Sylvie Cazes bought this estate. Light and floral on the nose. Fragrant indeed! Then quite rich on the palate. Pretty big and bordering on brutal. Drying finish. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2020-2030
