2014 Chauvin 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 86 points
Drink by: 2018 - 2025
The 2014 Chauvin had a broody bouquet, taciturn at first but gradually unfurling to reveal brambly red berry fruit mixed with cedar and soy, just some volatility emerging with time in the glass.
The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin that lends it approachability.
"Château Chauvin was acquired by Sylvie Cazes in May 2014. While searching through the archives of the property, a Château Chauvin label from 1929 was discovered. This immediately appealed to Sylvie, who decided to use it as the basis for the creation of the new label, while preserving the essence of the Château. After that, the graphic research went back to the meaning of the word “chauvin”. To be “chauvin” in French means to be proud of your land, to love your land.
To the label dating from 1929, a symbol was therefore added to illustrate its values: Cupid, son of Venus, and the god of Love in Roman mythology, proudly displays a banner depicting a lion, the emblem figuring on the coat of arms of Saint-Emilion, his land that he looks over with a watchful eye. As from the 2014 vintage, the label showing Cupid straddling a lion represents the attachment of Château Chauvin to the land of Saint-Emilion."
