2018 Château Chauvin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

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. 90-92 Pts

2016 Château Chauvin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

Soft and polished, with layers of sweet, ripe, juicy plums, the medium-bodied, elegant, easy to like wine serves up sweet, red cherries and licorice with ease. You can enjoy this with just a few years of age.

Deep in color, full bodied with more richness than usual, there is a tannic structure with enough freshness and crisp, crunchy, dark red berries to age.

Fresh, forward, medium bodied, easy drinking, red cherry dominated fruit with earth and thyme accents.

Good color, fresh, forward, soft, but a it feels slightly pushed, and a bit extracted for its abilities. Still the earthy, thyme and cherry finish is quite nice.

Medium bodied, fresh, forward, soft, but a little pushed, during the extraction, giving it just a bit of dryness in the plummy, cherry, thyme and earthy finish.

Medium bodied with a plethora of fresh, ripe berries, earth, flowers and stone, this wine is the best the estate has produced since Sylvie Cazes took over. There is an attractive softness to the elegant finish. The bottles now have a new label, which history buffs may be interested to know is a redesign of their label from the 1920s.

2011 Château Chauvin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 87

2010 Château Chauvin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

Consistently one of the best value wines from St. Emilion, the 2010 continues that streak with its open, round, soft style, ripe black raspberries, spice and licorice. Drink it now, or give it a few years of age and it should be even better.

2005 Château Chauvin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Blackberry, black cherry, tobacco and gravel scents lead to a medium/full bodied wine with a sweet, plum and licorice finish. This is already starting to drink well and should deliver pleasure for at least another decade or longer.

2000 Château Chauvin  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Fully mature, medium bodied charmer with an earthy, sweet, ripe, cherry, plum and tobacco nose is made even better with its thyme and spicy accents. Soft, round and easy to like, this pop and pour wine is at peak today.
