Chateau Chauvin Folie de Chauvin St Emilion Grand Cru 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Thanks to grapes picked at full maturity, Folie de Chauvin presents nice red fruits notes, freshness, round and smooth aromas. A long finale, slightly oaky.
Blend: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
Attractive baking spices and custard-powder aromas with blackberry and cassis. The palate delivers a silky, even-paced and vibrant array of plum and blackberry fruits amid dark-roasted spices. Best from 2022.
This has good energy, with kirsch and raspberry fruit inlaid liberally with singed apple wood and cedar notes. Light spice, fruitcake and bramble hints help extend the finish. Drink now through 2023. 4,000 cases made.
