Winemaker's Note:

Hermitage: flawless for many years, they have achieved a level of perfection that commands admiration. Since 1481, the Chave family reigns supreme over the vineyards of the Hermitage. Yesterday, Gerard peasant winemaker in the best sense; Jean-Louis today. Probably the finest visionaries and observers of the Hermitage and beyond, the French vineyard in general. Jean-Louis Chave brings its know-how completely consolidate the vision of the vineyard, each plot resembling a small Japanese garden with a line shot. While opening up to other territories, such as 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 piecemeal or "super wines" rather faithful reflection of this magical hill. The red comes from the hermitage best "neighborhoods" of Beaume, the Hermit, and reflects the strength Bessards. Fluency maturities such as touch farms in barrels here provide very great moments of tasting.

Critical Acclaim:

2012 vintage: Bright yellow. An expressive, complex bouquet displays aromas of mineral-accented orchard fruits and melon, with hints of smoky minerals, herbs and lemon pith in the background. Densely packed pear, Meyer lemon and honey flavors are energized by a note of ginger, showing excellent clarity. Closes with powerful thrust and mineral-driven persistence, leaving notes of fennel and pear skin behind. Score: 92 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Dec 2014

2011 vintage: Light, bright yellow. A deeply scented, mineral-tinged bouquet evokes fresh pear, peach pit and melon with hints of anise, lemon rind and jasmine. Gently sweet and chewy in the mouth, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit flavors lifted and sharpened by smoky minerality. Shows a suave blend of richness and vivacity and finishes with strong cling and resonating florality. Score: 92 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Mar 2016
