2010 Chauvin, St-Emilion (Elsewhere $55)

SKU #1066849 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Deep rich fruit aromatics on the nose, and a lovely plum colour that is holding firm, barely bricking around the edges. This proves once again that this is just a stellar vintage in Bordeaux, delivering on both banks. It's high in alcohol and maybe a bit of a gamble to decide when to drink to make the most of the fruit before the alcohol flattens things out on the finish. But, there is definitely depth and width here with dark bitter chocolate notes and frm tannins - plenty to recommend. 50% new oak, harvest September 29 to October 19. (JA) Inner quote mark

Outer quote mark Wow. This is unknown with walnut, dark chocolate and dark fruit. Full body, Juicy and sexy. Velvety. Inner quote mark (3/2016)

90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Chauvin produces a stylish wine, always exhibiting plenty of black cherry fruit intermixed with garrigue notes as well as hints of spice box and Christmas fruitcake in a medium to full-bodied, elegant yet savory and expansively textured style. The 2010 has a precociousness that gives it an up-front, sexy appeal, but then clamps down on the palate as the tannins begin to accumulate in the wine’s finish. Forget it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 25. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)
