Jean Louis Chave-L

Jean Louis Chave

$280.00 Net

Starts out dusty wild red cherries, semi-dried blueberries, roast coffee beans. Decant and swirl half hour then get smoked black cherry, pomegranate, plum sauce, cola, five spice, toasty barrel notes. Perky acidity and a “fit” style tells us it’ll age 20-30 years.

Jeb Dunnuck for The Wine Advocate, December 2015: "One of the more charming and forward efforts from Chave, the 2012 Hermitage sports a mostly opaque purple color to go with classic creme de cassis and blackberry fruits intermixed with notions of lead pencil shavings, violets and powdered rocks. Deep, full-bodied and sumptuously textured, with good freshness, this pure, elegant Hermitage shows more and more definition and cut with time in the glass, but never loses it's more fruit forward, charming profile. I suspect it will drink nicely for most of its life."
