Reviews 93 points Vinous "Deep, glistening violet. Intensely perfumed, spice-tinged aromas of black raspberry, cherry liqueur and candied violet are complemented by a smoky mineral quality. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, dark berry and exotic spice flavors that turn sweeter on the back half. Shows excellent definition and spicy lift on the long, energetic finish, which is framed by smooth, harmonious tannins. (JR)"

About Bernard Levet
Despite the family's commitment to traditional winemaking techniques, there has been a notable uptick in the quality of their wines since Agnes joined the team. This is evident in their flagship wine, La Chavaroche, which is made from 100% Syrah from Cote Brune and is known for its captivating aromatics and ageability. The wine is named after Agnes's grandmother and is a testament to the family's dedication to preserving their heritage.
In addition to La Chavaroche, Bernard Levet also produces Les Journaries, which is sourced from a single parcel of La Landonne. This vineyard might sound familiar to Northern Rhone connoisseurs as it is the same vineyard from which E. Guigal sources their La La's. Both wines are made with minimal intervention in the cellar to allow the natural flavors and aromas of the grapes to shine through.
Overall, Bernard Levet wines are a true testament to the beauty and power of the Rhone Valley. Their commitment to traditional winemaking techniques and respect for the land is evident in every bottle. With Agnes now part of the team, the estate is poised to continue producing exceptional wines for years to come.
