Château Chauvin Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

5261329

Vieux Château Chauvin:
It had taken four generations to craft a wine of renown and establish skills based on a meticulous approach to winemaking. It was 1891 that it all began, when Victor Ondet a prosperous dyer in the town of Libourne, invested all he had in the purchase of "Domaine de Chauvin",a small estate od 9.9 acres that produced a wine held in high esteem even that time.

Chauvin's successful 2005 ranks alongside their 2000 and 1998. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by lovely aromas of black currants, cherries, smoke, meats, and minerals. Superb purity, full body, good acidity, and moderate tannin suggest this fleshy, substantial St.-Emilion will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and last for 15 or more.
