Chateau Chauvin 2016: A complex and concentrated Saint-Emilion

Classified Growth in the Saint-Emilion appellation, Chateau Chauvin is produced on a 15 hectare vineyard. The vines are on average 30 years old, and planted on soil composed of sandy-clay. The vineyard has 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon planted. Chateau Chauvin 2016 is aged in oak barrels (60% are new) over a period of 15-18 months.

Chateau Chauvin 2016 had a homogenous budding period, thanks to a mild winter and lots of rain. Spring was humid with cool temperatures, this delayed the vines development. Flowering took place in June thanks to a short dry spell. August was hot and drought-stricken. The terroir of Chateau Chauvin reacted perfectly to the weather conditions. The grapes matured perfectly in mid-September, after a drought-ending rain. Harvest took place from October 6th-20th.

Chateau Chauvin 2016 has a striking color. The nose is characterized by its fruity aromas. The tannins are silky and elegant. Chateau Chauvin 2016 is fresh with a beautiful tension in the mouth

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Chauvin, owned by Sylvie Cazes, has a nicely detailed bouquet with blackberry, iris and bay leaf aromas, more understated than the 2015 Chauvin and perhaps more detailed. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin, plenty of slightly tarry black fruit but with great structure and focus on the lightly spiced finish. This may be the best vintage that I have tasted in recent vintages, and it should age with style.
