This is one of those wines in which I tell people, if you don't like this, it's your palate being bad, and you need to adjust to the wine. This I want to leave in my wine locker for 10 years before drinking again. Green, whiteflower, sex pot.

One of the oldest and most respected names in French wine, Chave continually garners high praise for the excellent Northern Rhone wines it produces. Founded in 1481, and passed from father to son ever since, the domaine is now headed by young Jean-Louis Chave, a graduate of UC Davis' prestigious oenology program. Chave owns vines in 9 of the 18 vineyards that cover the Hermitage hillside. Keenly aware of the different dynamics fruit from different parcels can have, Jean-Louis pays close attention to the terroir-influences when selecting fruit for this, his top cuvee. He uses little to no oak on his wines, believing that the innate character of the fruit is what makes a truly great wine. In this vein, he intervenes with filtering or fining minimally, if at all. Jean-Louis' 2006 Hermitage Blanc is a study in opulence; tones of nuttiness and flower blend with hints of grilled pear and honey.

Predominantly Marsanne with a dollop of Roussanne. Redolent of peaches and nectarines in it's youth with an intensely floral nature Chave's blanc ages into a precise, mineral driven wine that features deep aromatics of heather and lanolin.

Predominantly Marsanne with a dollop of Roussanne, this is simply the greatest white wine from the Rhône Valley. Redolent of peaches and nectarines in it's youth with an intensely floral nature Chave's blanc ages into a precise, mineral driven wine that features deep aromatics of heather and lanolin. Allow it to breath or cellar for years.
