Charvin 2014 Previous Buyers Offer
Made with whole clusters, fermented and raised entirely in large concrete tanks, the ebullient and ever-curious Laurent Charvin’s wines are always some of the most elegant, highly perfumed and pure wines of the appellation. At the same time they are reliably deep in flavor and balanced to age, despite their suave, upfront appeal. JOSH RAYNOLDS
As many customers will know here at PWS HQ we regard this producer to be in the very top echelon and Laurent a true master of his craft. The wines from this estate are not the overly large, showy and heavy handed examples often seen from the South. Instead Laurent makes wines of true finesse and one might even say grace (a term not regularly used for Chateauneuf) that are not encumbered by oak or artifice, the only real influences being vineyard and season. These are wines for the true lovers of the region.
