Reviews & Scores

These two brilliant vintages from Laurent Charvin include a superb 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape displaying a personality reminiscent of a hypothetical blend of his 1990 and 1998. A blend of 85% Grenache and the rest equal parts Mourvedre, Vaccarese, and Syrah, all aged in old tanks, it exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of black raspberries, kirsch liqueur, and subtle notions of underbrush and nori seaweed wrapper. Rayas-like in its ethereal richness, length, and texture with a sense of lightness despite its weight, this beauty possesses superb purity, equilibrium, texture, and elegance. Some serious tannins are lurking behind all the fruit, so this 2007 will benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring. It will drink beautifully for 15-18 years. - 94-96+ points

The 2008 Falletto is an incredibly attractive and refined Barolo with a bouquet of red berry fruits and perfumed, almost sensuous floral characters and hints of white truffles. There is excellent balance, depth and definition on the palate supported by firm but very elegant tannins. Savoury red cherry and cassis notes and a refined mineral character on the finish give...
