J.L. Chave Selection$73.00
All "Estate," 12-60 year old vine Syrah from three blocks on the Hermitage hill. Power, persistence, grace and complexity...qualities of great wine...are here. Wild red, black and blue berries, fennel, tobacco, black olive, Earl Grey tea, soy sauce. Full-bodied and fine structure. Will age 20 years if you want it too. Drinking great now too.
"Farconnet" is the name of a man from whom the Chave family bought a parcel of their Hermitage holdings about a hundred years ago. Must have been quite a guy to be memorialized so kindly.
