2004 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1133478 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Dark red. Explosively aromatic, assertive nose combines red and dark berries, exotic spices and a strong lavender note. Lush, creamy and sweet, but with good focus to the bright raspberry, blackberry and licorice flavors. Silky, focused and pure on the long, juicy finish. This very sexy wine will drink well young but is balanced to improve with cellaring. (JR)  (1/2007)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Very pure and stylish, showing lots of red currant, licorice and fig flavors, backed by ample flesh, with wonderful balance and a long, mineral- and herb-tinged finish. Perfumy and elegant in the end. Should flesh out more with some cellaring. Drink now through 2021. (JM)  (5/2007)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Showing complex, nuanced aromatics of black cherry fruit, herbs de Provence, licorice and serious mineral notes, the 2004 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape is medium bodied, smooth, elegant and streamlined. Drink over the next 10 years or so. (JebDunnuck.com)  (8/2009)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape shows the style of the vintage, yet has plenty of fruit, medium-bodied richness and bright acidity. Possessing a darker slant to its fruit and loads of Christmas spice, pepper, iron and cured meat-like aromas and flavors, it’s at full maturity, yet will continue to hold nicely for 4-5 years, and then have a gradual evolution after that.

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- 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. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- 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.
