Domaine Chave Hermitage 2009

In the world of Northern Rhone greatness, Chave is undoubtedly the authority. His Hermitage Rouge is vinified in both stainless steel and open topped casks, undergoing multiple daily punch downs. After one year and a half years, parcels are blended to create the final cuvée combining seven unique terroirs. 2009 is one of the greatest vintages Chave has produced over the last two decades. Jammy and dark, with powerful undertones of grilled meat and pepper spice. Intense and grippy, with an extraordinary finish. Rhone lovers, we’d cellar a bottle or two if we were you.
