Domaine Charvin is certainly among the very finest producers in all of Chateauneuf du Pape. The domaine’s style is one of elegance and minerality with black fruits beautifully balanced together. Their minimalist approach includes ageing their wines in concrete tanks rather than oak and no destemming of the fruit, which allows them to produce wines in this style. The result is a very pure expression of the terroir of the vineyards.
Not only do they produce a great Chateauneuf du Pape but they also have a top notch Cotes du Rhone and a superb value with their Domaine Charvin à Côté Vin de Pays, a blend of equal parts Grenache and Merlot.
Today we have the 2008 Domaine Charvin à Côté Vin de Pays. It’s a great value from a top producer. This is a delicious red wine that is packed with black fruits, earth, and minerals with no oak. A solid wine for $9.99! Plus, as a bonus, we’re also offering Free Shipping when you buy six or more.
