"If you want the truest of Côte-Rôties... "
2021 Levet Côte-Rôtie La Chavaroche

Posted by Joe Salamone

Levet's La Chavaroche has become one of the essential facets of our northern Rhône selections.

The explanation is easy. Levet's Chavaroche is unapologetically raw, stunningly pure, and beautiful. You'd be hard pressed to find an expression of Syrah as honest.

These qualities are laid bare in the vivid and classic 2021 vintage. 

The 2021 Chavaroche offers up a gorgeous cast of aromatics with tons of finesse and energy. Everything is presented with a beautiful, seamless harmony.

When it comes to unyieldingly honest and unapologetically traditional Côte-Rôtie, Levet's wines are without peer. They are wildly untamed, beautifully compelling, and utterly authentic expressions of Syrah. The 2021 Chavaroche captures all of this with startling clarity.

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.

As we've written before, Neal Rosenthal, Levet’s importer, isn’t shy about singling Chavaroche out: “There is no more consistently great wine in our portfolio than Levet’s La Chavaroche…If you want the truest of Côte-Rôties…if you admire both the intellectual and the savage, then this is a must-buy wine.”

I'll end this now. There are few wines from the northern Rhône as uncompromising as Levet's Chavaroche. The 2021 is a beautiful snapshot of this.
