Jancis Robinson

Cask sample. Deep cherry red. Subtle and dark-fruited on the nose. Dry and firm on the palate, much less open than some in this vintage but all in balance with the dry and fine tannins and the freshness entwined with the lurking fruit. Chewy chalky finish, the fruit not quite as rich as the Perrières but longer and fresher. Worth the extra. (JH)



(from a .41 ha parcel). This is aromatically similar to the Perrières though the menthol character is a bit more prominent. As is virtually always the case chez Chauvenet, this is the biggest and most powerful wine in the range as there is terrific mid-palate concentration that only adds to the sense of volume and opulence, all wrapped in a very firm, serious and brooding finish. Notwithstanding the abundant sap, this is very clearly built for the long-term and is a wine that should be put in your ‘buy and forget’ category. (91-93)/2031+
