With vines in Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Côtes-du-Rhône, the Chouvet family has 103 acres, with vinification being the charge of Helene Chouvet. This is a ripe, juicy, fruity, relatively soft style of wine, with some new wood, that only hints at the tannins and the earthy flavors that are beneath the surface. Imported by Exceptional Wines.
