2003 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1065003 96 points Wine Spectator

 *#13 of Top 100 of 2006* Terrific example of the vintage--this is loaded with the pepper, garrigue, grilled herb and briary tannins, all backed by powerful layers of dark currant, plum and blackberry fruit. Lingering hint of dried orange peel adds further dimension.  (5/2006)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Loaded with fruit and drinking at point, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape is about as sexy and up-front as wine gets from this estate. Garrigue, black licorice, ground herbs and loads of sweet red fruits all come soaring from the glass. It has a voluptuous, ripe, full-bodied profile to go with sweet tannin. I’d drink bottles over the coming couple of years, but it too will evolve gracefully, and that’s not something you can say for a lot of 2003s. (JD)  (8/2014)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium red. Intense aromas of jammy raspberry and wild strawberry, fresh rose, candied violet and magnolia. A remarkably lush, creamy wine, with vibrant, expressive red berry and subtle garrigue flavors that expand all the way through the very long finish. A compelling wine that offers great purity and balance and very suave tannins. (JR)  (1/2006)

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
