Domaine Chave Hermitage 2014

When it comes to varietal Syrah, Jean-Louis Chave’s Hermitage is the cream of the crop. The wine is vinified in both stainless steel/open topped casks and undergoes multiple daily punch downs. After one and a half years, the separate parcel wines are blended to create the final cuvée, which combines seven unique terroirs. The 2014 is vibrant and bright, full of smoky red fruit flavors and floral undertones.

Hermitage, France

Prestige appellation of the Northern Rhône, where a mash-up of soils creates the world’s most tantalizingly rich, exotically spicy Syrah and whites from Marsanne that meld viscosity and minerality.
