JL Chave Hermitage Rouge 2018

$366.95 + GST

Hermitage, Northern Rhone, France

As virtually all of the various components of Chave’s 2018 Hermitage were still separate, I’ve given a rating that reflects the variability I saw when tasting through the barrels and made a guess regarding Jean-Louis’s blending sensibilities and available volumes. For example, the Péléat (92 – 94), a pretty, red-fruited element could add freshness but is likely to be a small portion of the blend (if it’s even included). More impressive were the lush, mouth-filling Les Beaumes (95 -97) and stony, elegant Le Méal (94 – 96). Lots from L’Ermite (98 – 100) and Les Bessards (98 – 100) will likely make up the bulk of the blend, oozing with liquid stone, intense blueberry and cassis fruit, and possessing firm yet ripe structures.97-100 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
