    April 14, 2019 - The nose is a bit neutered and there was a lot of heat on the nose. After 1 to 2 hours of decanting, started to Blossom with kirch liqueur and ripe blackberry notes. This still struggles to remain balanced despite the heat from the vintage which unfortunately isnt as well integrated as I would’ve liked it to be. Hoping my last two bottles fair better.

    March 15, 2019 - Plum, raisin, fig, cherry, balsamic note, medium to full body, licorice, apart from the heat an elegant wine with power, average aftertaste

    March 10, 2019 - Une magnifique bouteille à point. Un vin doux, épicé et profond.

    March 4, 2019 - Cellared since release, perfect cork and fill. Dark red core, minimal lightening at the rim. Intense nose of cherry, spice, savory notes, not getting any alcoholic heat. Medium-full body, ripe lush fruit but not over the top or raisiny, a bit of aged complexity, mellow tannins, medium-long finish, in the early phase of its drinking window. Excellent.

    (CHARVIN Chateauneuf-du-Pape) 2007 Charvin

    Dear Friends,

    Considering the 1999 version of this wine (from magnum) is still a contender for my 2009 Wine of the Year, the 2007 appears to be a relatively safe investment - for drinking or as an asset. If Charvin can perform at such a high level in a merely good to very good vintage, where does that place 2007?

    Unlike so many of the big-boy wines of the vintage, Laurent Charvin harnessed the potentially over-ripe/liquor-like Grenache of 2007 into a wine that has at least two decades of intellectual potential in front of it. This wine is among the very best of the vintage and I have no doubt it will escalate substantially in value over the next 20-30 years as the aura of 2007 follows it well into adulthood:

    This parcel has impeccable provenance - one shipment only:

    2007 Domaine Gerard Charvin Chateauneuf du Pape (WA94-96+)
    (my instinct says you should be able to find this from Premier Cru and a few other sources but, with 2007, all bets are off. I just don't see availability on Charvin's 2007 as they have cracked down significantly on grey marketing and the US allocation is all but gone at this point. Normally, I would tell you to take a chance and wait for lower prices but, with 2007, I can't make that recommendation. In addition, retailers know where their recession meal ticket is (2007 S. Rhones) and discounting is not likely)

    Thank you,
