6 x 750ml
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Chauvin is a little shy to begin, revealing pretty scents of wild blueberries, kirsch and warm black cherries followed by hints of violets and star anise. Full, wonderfully intense and concentrated, there is a lot of bright, crunchy fruit here with firm, rounded tannins and a refreshing lift to the long finish. Nicely done! Read more

Jane Anson - Decanter

Still in barrel, due to be bottled in the next few months. This is gorgeous, plump fruit, beautifully controlled in feel, elegant and silky but gourmet and easy to love. This is a great wine and one of the best Chauvins I've tasted young. Underlines that for me 2018 is a great vintage in St Emilion, certainly for medium-term drinking, but I would feel pretty confident this will go the long haul, and it has seriously improved over ageing to this point. First year of HVE3-certification. 50% new oak, harvest September 26 to October 13. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040

The 2018 Chauvin, the property of Sylvie Cazes, is very perfumed on the nose with small dark cherries, blueberry and light spicy top notes. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry, melted tar and graphite notes. This is nicely focused with a pleasing bitter edge on the finish that urges you back for another sip. Very fine.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Medium-bodied, polished, earthy and leafy with succulent cherries, plums, soft textures and roundness. The finish with its thyme-infused red fruits really hits the spot.

A pretty and polished young red with dark-berry and cherry character, medium body, fine tannins and a clean and vivid finish.

Winemakers Note

A HISTORY OF FAMILIES AND REVIVAL Since 1881 and until Sylvie Cazes and her children took over in May 2014, the Ondet family took great care of Château Chauvin and gave it all their know-how. Sylvie Cazes, a passionate winegrower who fell for the charms of this beautiful property, now wants to give Chauvin every opportunity for success in this new page in its history. As a result, after buying the property, she undertook an ambitious programme of restructuring of the viticultural and winemaking techniques. With precision and rigour, with respect for the terroir of Saint-Emilion and the conditions specific to each vintage, Sylvie Cazes and her team have created elegant, balanced, feminine and classy wines with the potential for ageing. Merlot: 75% Cabernet franc: 20% Cabernet-Sauvignon: 5%
