Bernard Levet Côte-Rôtie La Chavaroche 2018

97 Vinous

"Powerful, spice- and mineral-laced black/blue fruit scents show superb focus and pick up suggestions of smoked meat, licorice and violet with air. Sappy, deeply concentrated and pure, offering juicy blueberry, boysenberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that are firmed by a spine of tangy acidity. Blends power and vivacity with a sure hand and finishes extremely long and minerally, with supple tannins building steadily and in harmony with the wine’s assertive dark fruit. 100% whole clusters; all neutral foudres." -Josh Raynolds, Vineous

"This is, quite simply, a ferocious wine, unique in its unhibited expression in the smells and flavours of the appellation. No compromise is brooked here." -Roenthal Wine Merchants
