2013 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Review



There are times in life when things come together like Velcro, bald guys at a home improvement store or Michael Jackson and...well...you know. This wine is happiness and erotic satisfaction in a bottle.

Domaine Charvin is a Chateauneuf-du-Pape that is primarily Grenache and a minor blend of Syrah, Mouvedre and Vaccarèse. I have no idea what that there V grape is but it's apparently really good. A really fun fact about this place is they currently have two magnum bottles for my girls' birthday that are currently aging away on site. Can't wait to never open them or give them to my girls because this is about me.

In da nostrils I get the ever famous soil and spicy pepper that is such a great indicator of CNDP wines. In da mouf, before and after reaching spiritual ascension, I get tobacco and plum notes that dance around ya mouth like those Russian dancing guys that yell, "HYUAH!" a lot. The tannins are exquisite with a beautiful finish that makes you cry one perfectly formed tear after each sip.

If you haven't gotten into CNDP you should feel really bad about yourself and re-evaluate your peasant life. This is the wine you need to elevate to instead of drinking peacock piss.
