The approach of Château Chauvin’s team is to sublimate the terroir and acclaimed grape varieties of Saint-Émilion. With precision and rigor, respecting the conditions of each vintage, Sylvie Cazes and Philippe Moureau are striving to make elegant, balanced, feminine and sophisticated wines.
80% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 60% new French oak barrels for 15 to 18 months
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. Anticipated Maturity: 2019-2031
