Tasting Notes:

Aromas of graphite, tar, dark chocolate and black cherries abound, as well as ripe dark plums. This is a very convincing and complex edition of this wine. The palate is so concentrated and has a super deep, plush and fleshy stream of fresh plums and blackberries, as well as a swathe of fine tannins. Profoundly rich and velvety with a strong backbone. This will age for more than two decades after release.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Hermitage flawless for many years, they have reached a level of perfection that commands admiration. Since 1481, the Chave family reigns over the vineyards of the Hermitage. Yesterday Gerard, wine-farmer, in the noblest sense; Today Jean-Louis. Probably the finest visionaries and observers of the Hermitage and beyond, the French vineyard in general. Jean-Louis Chave brings its expertise in fully consolidate the vision of the vineyard, each plot resembling a small Japanese garden with a line drawn. While opening up to other territories, like the Florentine, fabulous enclosed planted with very old vines in the heart of Anderlecht, which celebrated its first production in 2009. In the cellar, the Chave are the highest of the different terroirs Hermitage, working on complementary assemblies. Here no patchy or "super wines", rather a true reflection of this magical hill. The red hermitage comes from the best "neighborhoods" of Beaume, the Hermit, and reflects the strength of Bessards. The perfect control of maturities such as touch farms in barrels provide here very big moments tasting.
