August 15, 2017

2017-charvin

 

Laurent Charvin is the closest in style to Chateau Rayas… And he is also strongly defending the identity of the Côtes du Rhone terroir, and indeed, his côtes du Rhone 2014 is fabulous, the 2016 is even better… In fact the whole line-up was fabulous!!  I love Charvin 🙂
