1998 Vieux Chateau Chauvin, St-Emilion

SKU #1060537 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blockbuster effort, this garage wine is produced from a parcel carved out of the better known Chauvin estate. The opaque, thick, black/purple-colored 1998 boasts viscous, concentrated flavors of licorice, chocolate, blackberries, and currants. Full-bodied and voluptuous, with moderately high tannin, this massive wine will require 4-5 years of cellaring despite its hedonistic display of aromas and flavors. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2022. (RP)  (4/2001)

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
