Charvin is always a finesse wine, as Burgundian and pure and understated as you will find in Chateauneuf. Wonderful Grenache personality. They seem to like some time to reveal their graces. The 2003 is pretty forthcoming, but I find the 2000 and 2001 still pretty reticent. The 2001 is a brilliant w...
