2006 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape

2006 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This is the real deal. These 2006s are ready to drink and wide open for business. Lovely restraint and intensity at the same time. Kirsch, licorice and dried herbs with a solid punch of acidity on the finish. Really one of the best 2006s I have had so far. 85% Grenache, 5% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Vaccarese.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
