JL Chave Selection Offerus Saint Joseph
Brand JL Chave Selection
The bouquet is rustic with minerals and dark berries. Same on the palate; juicy dark berries, good acidity, some metal and ok tannin.
Jean-Louis Chave makes sublime Hermitage. Indeed his family have been doing so since 1483, which makes Berry Bros. & Rudd, founded in 1698, appear somewhat arriviste by comparison. What is perhaps a little less known is that the domaine is actually located in Mauves, in the heart of St Joseph, and the furtherance of the understanding and appreciation of this under-rated appellation is one of Jean-Louis' most pressing concerns.
