About This Wine
Jean-Louis Chave is one of the finest ‘vignerons’ in France producing some astonishing white and red Hermitages.
‘Anyone who loves Hermitage and has a cold cellar should be lining up to get a few bottles of this beauty.’ – Robert Parker
Generally 100% destemmed, as the Hermitage is meant to be about the expression of the individual vineyards and soils and Jean Louis believes that stems have a tendency to level out the differences. Fermentation in wood tonneaux and stainless steel tanks. Aged in barriques for 30 months.
Sourced from several different plots that are heavily granitic, the terroir really shows up in the structured minerality of this wine. As it ages, it will develop a complex bouquet of black and red fruits, spice, leather, earth, and smoke. Give this some time in the cellar, then pop the cork for a dry aged steak or roasted lamb.
