When it comes to unyieldingly honest and unapologetically traditional Côte-Rôtie, Levet's wines are without peer.
Levet's Chavaroche has long been one of the smartest buys for your cellar, especially when it comes to steadfastly traditional northern Rhône wine.
The 2016 Chavaroche is a vintage to go long on. It's a vintage that will age majestically.
Chavaroche is a wildly untamed, beautifully compelling and utterly authentic expression of Syrah.
You can expect the 2016 Chavaroche to possess unusual depth, clarity and refinement. In 2016, the northern Rhône produced concentrated and nicely ripe wines, but the truly exciting part is how the wine presents in such a graceful, mineral and energetic way.
Chavaroche is a brutally rocky and steeply terraced southwest-facing vineyard. Levet is meticulous in the vineyard, but the grapes simply do their thing in the cellar – vinification is thoughtful, but there’s no artifice at work.
Levet's Chavaroche is one of the most traditional and fascinating wines currently being made in the northern Rhône. With age, Levet's wines become even more nuanced, captivating and refined. The 2016 seems destined to become a dazzling bottle after a decade or so in the cellar.
