Tasting Notes

The Mon Coeur is blend of Syrah, Grenache and a touch of Mouvedre from a handful of villages around the southern Rhone Valley. The vineyards are managed organically by Jean Louis Chave even though this is technically a negotiant (non-estate) wine. Ripe red fruits and full in body with a touch of sweet spices follow this wine from nose to palate. Good length and intensity. - Chris L

Few who cherish the power and perfume of classically made Hermitage would argue that the greatest red and white examples emerge from the Chave family cellars. The current generations in charge, father Gérard and son Jean-Louis, use their knowledge, experience and spread of lieux-dits to craft wines that combine all the power, longevity, nuance and refinement that the Hermitage hill is capable of.The expertise that Gérard and Jean-Louis draw upon is not only their own, but also the accumulated wisdom of their ancestors, transmitted down through the generations since Chaves began making Hermitage in 1481, continuing a five-century dynasty of extraordinarily high quality and pure expression of great terroir that is unmatched.As Andrew Jefford writes in The New France, 'The Chave line ... could make a fair claim to be France's winemaking royal family: in no other of France's great terroirs is the largest individual landholder so deeply rooted in time and place, so supremely competent, and so modest a custodian of the insights and craftsmanship of the past.
