Made by Sylvie Cazes, Chateau Chauvin is located to the north-west of Saint-Émilion, half way between Cheval Blanc and the Butte de Rol, close to the Pomerol appellation.
“A major sleeper of the vintage, this over-achieving St.-Emilion seems to come up big in many of the top vintages and needs more recognition from consumers. Loads of black currants, toasty oak and forest floor notes comprise this large-scaled, substantial wine. With its intense fruit, copius glycerin, and long, complete finish, this wine is successful now but should be better in 3-4 years and last for 15 or more.” – 91 pts, The Wine Advocate, February 2012
