Chateau Chauvin Saint Emilion 2016
|France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion
The medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Chauvin has quite a meaty/savory nose of chargrill, black olives, sautéed herbs and truffles with a core of baked plums and lifted black cherry compote. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a solid frame of rounded tannins and just enough freshness to offer a seamless boost to the long earthy finish.
Toasty and direct, with dark plum and blackberry compote flavors, cloaked in warm ganache and roasted vanilla accents. Broad in feel, weighed down a touch by the toasty notes on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
