Château Chauvin 2014
The 2014 Chauvin had a broody bouquet, taciturn at first but gradually unfurling to reveal brambly red berry fruit mixed with cedar and soy, just some volatility emerging with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin that lends it approachability. There is a keen thread of acidity, although the finish just seems to lack detail and nuance, especially compared to the imminent and I suspect superior 2015 Chauvin.
Blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon.
