Cotes du Rhone Mon Coeur Jl Chave 91rr 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A fantastic Cotes du Rhone that's a blend of Grenache and Syrah from vineyards located in Visan, Vinsobres, and Esteezargues (all southern Rhone communes), the 2010 J.L. Chave Selection Cotes du Rhone Mon Coeur delivers a classic array of bright black cherry, black currant, violets, garrigue, and licorice on the nose. Beautifully intense and rich aromatically, it doesn't lose a beat on the palate and is medium to full-bodied and loaded with fruit, showcasing notable purity, a voluptuous texture, and big, mouth coating tannin that emerges on the finish. It needs an hour of air to shine currently, and will be even better in a year or two. I would consume bottles over the coming 5-8 years, yet a decade of prime drinking isn't out of the question here...91" Rhone Report 2012
