Deep ruby in color, this wine offers a complex nose, minerally and fruity. It mingles aromas of ripe raspberry, black and morello cherries with hints of flint, ink, clove and black pepper. The highly vibrant palate has a sound underlying structure which is powerful yet velvety, thanks to tannins which, despite mellowing, are still very perceptible. This is a stylish wine bearing the hallmarks of its terroir with a long and spicy finish.
Mr. Chauvet was a well-respected winemaker in the 1970’s, who shared his expertise and knowledge with other winemakers in the Beaujolais and Mâconnais regions in the southernmost part of Burgundy. After he passed away, his passion and craft are being carried on by the next generation of dedicated winemakers.
