Domaine Jean-Louis Chave 2018 Hermitage 2x75cl

Old-vine Syrah from the iconic northern Rhône Valley appellation of Hermitage; Matured in small oak barriques for approximately 18 months.

The Chaves estate can be traced back to 1481 making it one of the oldest in the northern Rhône. They are one of the largest landowners on the hill of Hermitage, with 9.3 hectares of organically-grown Syrah holdings across some of the most important terroirs, including parcels of Les Bessards (considered the finest of their vineyards), Le Méal, Les Roucoules and l’Hermite among others. There are a further four hectares of Hermitage dedicated to white grapes - Marsanne and Roussanne. They don’t make any single parcel wines, instead three wines are released each vintage; their iconic Hermitage, Hermitage Blanc and a Saint-Joseph.

Please note that there shall be a shipping charge for 2 bottles applied to this lot.
