Reviews

“A fine Chaminé perhaps the best one I've seen.. a very nice buy…a terrific "summer red.“  - Mark Squires, 232, The Wine Advocate, 31st Aug 2017

"Fresh, with a zesty undertone to the wild strawberry, dark cherry and underbrush flavors, this medium-bodied red sports hints of white pepper and mineral through the lightly tannic finish." - Mar 31, 2018 - Gillian Sciaretta - Wine Spectator
