 Charvin is one of the most traditional (fermenting with the stems, for instance) and certainly brilliant producers of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. I’d equate his wines to those of Bruno Giacosa in Barolo. So ravishingly pure and complex they can seem almost deceptively light when young, but aging to a uniquely profound splendor.

Vinous rates this the best Charvin ever and one of the top five Chateauneufs of the vintage: 

Lurid ruby-red. Sexy, highly perfumed raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille scents are complemented by hints of musky rhubarb and Asian spices. Palate-staining sweet red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors show power as well as superb vivacity thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The floral quality comes back emphatically on a strikingly long, sappy finish shaped by smooth, slow-mounting tannins. This might be the finest wine to emerge from this estate that I have ever tasted, and I've had some pretty amazing ones over the years. 

A rare Chateauneuf that can stand proudly beside Grand Cru red Burgundy. And for the great classic it is, still a bargain.
