Chateau Chauvin Folie de Chauvin St Emilion Grand Cru 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
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.
The 2015 Chauvin is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and earthy on the nose with bay leaves, warm plums, underbrush, baked cherries and menthol aromas. The medium to full-bodied mouth is firm and chewy, a little taut but packed with flavor layers and finishing with an herbal lift. Drink Date: 2019-2031.
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.
