2019 CHARVIN COTES DU RHONE
This Cotes du Rhone is one of the best, in a restrained and complex style. Charvin has closely managed vineyards with winemaking that's strictly old school, whole-bunch fermented in concrete vats that preserve the fruit purity and harmonious details of herbs, spice and earth. Charvin's Chateauneuf is stellar and this is the same stuff from down the road, minus the price tag. This exceptional Rhone vintage is a must-collect.
