100 points Robert Parker: The greatest wines Chave has produced since 2003 are the two cuvees of 2009 Hermitage. The 2009 Hermitage exhibits a black/purple color along with a sumptuous nose of roasted meats, ground pepper, black currants, blackberry jam, and subtle smoke and licorice. The extraordinary bouquet is followed by a wine of extravagant intensity as well as tremendous focus and precision. While not as powerful as the blockbuster 2003, the amazing 2009 may turn out to be a modern day version of

Features 2002 Jean Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc 1.5L 90 ST Product Information : Subdued but pure aromas of ginger, white flowers and menthol. Very tightly wound and citric; almost hard-edged for a young Chave white wine. All edges now and difficult to taste, especially following the 2003. Quite strict and uncompromisingly dry, but very long and subtle. Chave says this is much richer than it's showing today. -Stephen Tanzer Jan/Feb. 05. This is a Marsanne-Rousanne blend.
This wine is from France, Rhone region, Northern Rhone sub-region and Hermitage appellation. The 2002 Hermitage blanc exhibits abundant amounts of acacia flowers, honeyed citrus, and a hint of orange marmalade in a ripe, elegant, medium-bodied style. Because of its low acidity, it is best consumed during its first 5-7 years of life. What Chave accomplished in the extremely challenging 2002 vintage is unquestionably noteworthy. Not because of tiny yields and small grapes, but due to Chave's decision to

The power, perfume and elegance of this tradititionally made Hermitage is clearly exhibited. The secret to the remarkable balance is in the blending skills of Jean-Louis Chave. He, like his father Gerard did before him, gathers the vintage cuvees to create singular blends of great nuance,
Juicy yet refined, with plum, cherry pit and blood orange notes lined with grilled savory and allied to a bright iron spine. The focused finish displays excellent cut.

Offers an array of red and dark berry flavors that gain flesh and sweetness with air. Packs a serious punch but comes off as energetic, with no excess weight. Closes

Features 2002 Jean Louis Chave Hermitage 1.5L 90-91 ST Hermitage /Crozes -Hermitage Shiraz /Syrah Product Information: Medium ruby. Black cherry, licorice, pepper and tar on the nose. Very dry but classy and aromatic, with currant fruit complicated by licorice, pepper, leather and fresh herbs. Rather bracing for a young Chave wine, and difficult to taste after the 2003, but the wine's aromatic persistence suggests it will reward aging. Late notes of pepper and gunflint. -Stephen Tanzer Jan /Feb 05
This wine is from France, Rhone region, Northern Rhone sub-region and Hermitage appellation. One of the candidates for the Rhone Valley's “wine of the vintage' is Chave's 2002 Hermitage. A draconian selection has resulted in a deep ruby/purple-colored offering revealing sweet notes of melted licorice, briery berries, earth, and herbs. Medium to full-bodied, pure, elegant, and intense, this forward-styled Hermitage appears to be better than the 1992, 1993, and 1994, which are all fine wines that are
Shopping Cart Rating Jean -Louis Chave St Joseph 2010 Mulled plum, fig and boysenberry fruit is still a bit compact at the core, while anise, briar and singed wood spice notes sit atop. The finish has mouthwatering acidity and a long, smoldering charcoal thread for added intrigue. Should stretch out nicely in the cellar.

Jean-Louis Chave 'Silene' Crozes-Hermitage - $31 .99 $31 .99 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Crozes Hermitage, Rouge Product Description The vineyards for Silène are hillside vineyards located in Larnage and Gervans. It is rare for Crozes to come from hillside granitic soil as most Crozes is situated on the alluvial valley floor. The granite soil produces a wine with more backbone and structure. The idea behind this Crozes is to balance the fruit of Syrah without compromising the tightness given by the granite.
2004 Jean Louis Chave Hermitage 2004 Jean Louis Chave Hermitage BWE12517 $170 .00 Description : "The 2004 red Hermitage, which was given a much longer time in barrel and small foudre than normal because the Chaves determined the tannins and the acids needed a longer time to integrate, is a beauty. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, black cherry, licorice, pepper, and a hint of olive paste. It is a full-bodied wine that tastes atypical for this vintage

Jean-Louis Chave : Hermitage Domaine 2008 Jean-Louis Chave : Hermitage Domaine 2008 The 2008 Hermitage is a down-sized version of Chave's typical Hermitage, but it is, nevertheless, an elegant, mid-weight, pure effort exhibiting berry fruit intermixed with hints of black currants, herbs, pepper, meat juice and bouquet garni. When asked how they made such a fine wine in such a difficult vintage, the Chaves said that over 33% of the entire harvest was declassified. The 2008 is a wine to consume in its first

The Wine Spectator describes This shows mature notes, with expresso and warm cocoa melding into the mulled plum and blackberry fruit, while suvage notes of tapenade, charcoal and bay leaf fill in on the finish.
