Tasting Notes

  • JR

    Jancis Robinson, March 2012,
    Score: 96

    Tasted in four components that were to be blended at the end of November, 2011: #1: Deep cherry and dark berries on the nose and palate, with slow-mounting spiciness and serious finishing cling and power. #2: Wilder and more pungent, offering intense floral-accented red and dark berry qualities and notes of olive and candied licorice. This is mostly Meal, according to Chave. #3: Deep, smoky and aromatic, displaying an array of dark berry and spice qualities and a strong potpourri note. Juicy and focused on the finish, with the dark fruit note repeating. #4: Stunning aromas of violet, rose, black raspberry and cola, with a blast of Asian spices on the back. Juicy, mineral-driven and pure, with excellent finishing clarity and lingering sweetness. This should be a stunner. 96/100.

Producer

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

No other name in Hermitage is more famous than Jean-Louis Chave's. His family have been winemakersin the northern Rhône Valley since 1481 and have left their trademark by producing year-in and year-out some of the most exemplary, profound wines in the northern Rhône. His Hermitages are particularly noteworthy and are considered by many as the best of the appellation. They are true pinnacles of power though they remain focused, elegant and pure.

Region

Hermitage

Hermitage is a region that produces both red and white wines. Its famous red is made from 100% Syrah while the white is produced from Marsanne and/or Roussanne. A sweeter and very rare white wine is also produced from grapes that have been dried on straw before being pressed. A slighter warmer micro-climate enables Hermitage's red wines to have more ripeness and structure than Côte Rôtie which adds additional power and longevity. As a result, they are usually the most ‘masculine' styled reds in all of the northern Rhône.
