Gazette Special: Chave Hermitage
The Chave family is one of the greats of Hermitage. It is no secret that people search out the wines of Jean-Louis and hold his wines in the highest regard with many calling Chave the greatest Hermitage producer there is.
The consistency of this domaine is spot on. No matter the difficulties of the vintage, Chave always turns out top quality wine that inevitably is one of the finest of the vintage. With collectors the world over chasing the 2009 Hermitage that received a 100 point score, the 2008 has been sitting in our cold cellars aging gracefully. This is one of the “sleepers” from Chave in recent years.
