Technical Info

Estate

Calvet, one of the oldest French wine brands in the world, was founded in 1818 by Jean-Marie Calvet. Eldest son of Dr. Gabri-el Calvet and Anne Seriziat, Jean-Marie was born in 1789 in Anse, a small village north of Lyon. From his mother, whose family owned vineyards in Tain-l’Hermitage in the Rhone Valley, Jean-Marie inherited a passion for wine, founding Cal-vet in 1818 to commercialize the family’s wines. Jean-Marie and his son Octave expanded their business to Bordeaux, opening an office in 1849, and expanded to Burgundy in 1870, to become the largest wine company in France in the 19th and most of the 20th century. While Calvet was sold in New York as early as 1882, its focus was primarily Europe, Argentina and Asia, and so its presence in the USA had all but disappeared by the late 1990s. Sixth generation négociant and direct descendant Jean-Christophe Calvet, and his eldest son Jean-Sebastien Calvet, in partner-ship with Les Grands Chais de France, are re-introducing Cal-vet back into the USA market.

Food Pairing

Goes well with red and white meat, roasted vegetables and soft cheese.

Tasting Notes

Intensely garnet red in color with distinct fruit aromas of black currant and red orchard fruit. The palate is rich and tan-nic with lively, fleshy fruit flavors that ends with a well-structured finish.
