Yann Chave

750ML

£56.11£70.00

Yann shows the utmost respect to the history of Hermitage when making his own. His work in the winery and vineyard is focused on chasing the ‘DNA’ of Hermitage. We think mission accomplished. Care is taken in the winery to prevent over-extraction and ageing in both oak and steel is used to round out the wine before bottling. This is a wine to decant before enjoying! The nose is subdued prior to aerationg but with time blackberry jam, liquorice, tobacco and vanilla aromas are revelaed. The palate is generous but supported by dense tannins and vibrant acidity. Pan-fried duck breast will work excellently with this Hermitage.

Description

Yann Chave is one of our favourite winemakers in the Rhone valley. Following being poisoned by pesticides, Yann decided to convert the estate to Organic viticulture. Since 2007 they have been producing some of the best organic wines in the region.

CRITIC REVIEWS

CRITIC SCORE:
93.5/100

A fine effort, Chave's 2016 Hermitage features hints of cedar, roasted meat, raspberry and cherry on the nose. A full-bodied wine with a creamy, supple mouthfeel and long finish, it shows notable freshness. Like many of the 2016s from the region, it's already approachable yet should live at least another 15 years.
94/100 - Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

Youthful purple. Assertive aromas of black raspberry, cherry and violet develop olive and mocha nuances with air. Juicy, focused and appealingly sweet, offering intense red and blue fruit flavors that become deeper and spicier as the wine opens up. The floral note repeats strongly on the impressively long, focused finish, which features velvety tannins and a touch of candied licorice.
93/100 - Josh Raynolds, Vinous (Tasted February 2018)
