Domaine Charvin was created in 1851 by Guillaume Charvin. For one hundred years, the harvest of Domaine Charvin was sold in bulk to negociants in the Southern Rhone Valley. To commemorate owning the vineyards for a full century, for the first time, the Charvin family bottled their wine in 1951. The practice of selling their wine to negociants continued for some time after that.

The modern age of Domaine Charvin begins in 1990 when the young, energetic Laurent Charvin begins to manage the estate. Laurent Charvin was the sixth generation of his family to work at the property. 1990 was the first vintage for the Domaine in which they produced, bottled, and sold their own wine.

When Laurent Charvin took over managing the Domaine, they had about 4 hectares of vines. Today, they have twice that amount of vineyard land cultivated with vines.

The Chateauneuf du Pape vineyards of Domaine Charvin include 8.2 hectares of vines in Chateauneuf du Pape, in the lieux-dits of Cabrieres and Maucoil and lArnesque, in the northwest part of the appellation. Today, the estate is managed by Isabelle Charvin and Laurent Charvin.

They also own 12 hectares of vines in the Cotes du Rhone appellation. Their vineyards have a terroir of rocks and stones over limestone and clay soils. On average, their vines are close to 50 years of age.

Tasting Notes

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (which tips the scales around 15% natural alcohol) is a great example of traditional Chateauneuf du Pape winemaking. A dense dark ruby color is followed by a sexy nose of raspberries, ground pepper, spice box, damp earth, kirsch and dark currants. Full-bodied, complex, elegant and already irresistible as the tannins have completely melted away, it can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years.
