About This Wine

When it comes to unyieldingly honest and unapologetically traditional Côte-Rôtie, Levet's wines are without peer.

These are some of the most unique and exciting Côte Rôties around. They combine wildness with a breeding that's incredible.

Chavaroche is a brutally rocky and steeply terraced southwest-facing vineyard. Levet's vines in Chavaroche were planted in 1940 and makeup approximately sixty percent of the wine. The remainder comes from Mollard, another highly regarded site. Levet's work 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. What results is a raw and untamed expression of Côte-Rôtie. Chavaroche offers up a complicated and rugged presentation of animal, minerals, violets, olives, and dark fruit. Even in the context of a wine that ages extraordinarily well, the 2020 Chavaroche has all the making of a distance runner. With age, Chavaroche is absolutely gorgeous - a seamless weave of animal, mineral, violets, olives, and dark fruit. It's sauvage, for sure, but with elegance to spare as well.

Special 3-pack pricing, for a limited time. Use Code: Levet20
