Just arrived into New Zealand is the new 2016 vintage. 2016 in the Rhone is being rated as one of the greatest and when you align that with the likes of Domaine Charvin, you know the wine is going to be great. Made in a restrained and complex style, Charvin's winemaking is strictly old school, whole bunch pressing and concrete vats, to preserve the fruit purity and harmonious details of herbs, spice and earth. Charvin's Chateauneuf (see below) reputation is stellar and this is the same stuff from down the road, minus the price tag.


92/100 Decanter UK (2016 Vintage)
"A young and aromatic wine with some peppery notes and a whisper of sous-bois. With its soft palate, ripe fruit and swish of herbs, it is a vibrant and refreshing example. Drink 2018 – 2026."


John Livingstone-Learmonth, drinkrhone.com (2016 Vintage)
"Dusty trails, herbes de Provence mix on the nose, spice and cooked plums – it’s a Grenache-inspired bouquet; raspberry and mulberry feature well also. The palate runs with fluid content, and some iron in the tannins; it’s thorough and persistent, has more structure than most Côtes du Rhône reds. It finishes on a good charge, momentum. Loganberry, dark fruits lie at its heart. The aftertaste is fresh, has good mini-crunch. The cool threads on the palate are most engaging, and I love its genuine length. It’s properly good table wine."
