Perfectly situated in the northwest corner of St. Émilion, near the border shared with Pomerol is the gorgeous Chateau Chauvin. The Grand cru classe estate spanning 37 acres is sandwiched between neighbors Chateau Cheval Blanc and La Dominique with the entire vineyard planted on a single block.
The Chateau is owned by one of the most famous and powerful women in Bordeaux, Sylvie Cazes, who became the first woman to hold the position as president of the Union de Grand Crus de Bordeaux in 2012. On top of that and owning and managing Chateau Chauvin with her brother, Jean Michel (founder/owner Lynch Bages), she also owns the 3-star Michelin restaurant, Le Chapon Fin.
Sylvie, who purchased the property in 2014, wasted no time nor expense, plucking winemaker Phillipe Moreau from his position at Chateau Pichon Lalande and putting him in charge of both the Chauvin wines and their 2nd label, Folie de Chauvin. The timing couldn’t have been better as the stars aligned for the otherworldly 2015 vintage in St. Emilion.

Attractive baking spices and custard-powder aromas with blackberry and cassis. The palate delivers a silky, even-paced and vibrant array of plum and blackberry fruits amid dark-roasted spices. Best from 2022
