Château Chauvin was acquired by Sylvie Cazes in May 2014. This beautiful estate of 15 hectares is located to the northwest part of Saint-Émilion, close to the Pomerol appellation. The soil at Chauvin is sandy clay, benefiting from the presence of a pseudogley and an iron-rich sub-soil similar to that found in parts of Pomerol. Thanks to its lower water retention capacity, the soil rapidly succumbs to water shortages, thus allowing the grapes to ripen more quickly. The efficient drainage of the entire vineyard also allows run-off of water during the wettest periods. Average age of vines: 28 years. Folie de Chauvin is the second label of classed growth Château Chauvin. Tasting Notes: Thanks to grapes picked at full maturity, Folie de Chauvin presents nice red fruits notes freshness, round and smooth aromas. A long finale, slightly oaky.
