J.l. Chave Sélection Crozes-Hermitage Silene 2006
Sourced from the very best villages in the Southern RhÃ´ne, namely ValrÃ©as,Vinsobres and Rasteau, this is a fantastic CÃ´tes Du RhÃ´ne , self-evidentlypunching above its putative weight. This is more than confirmed by the palate;sweet Grenache at the core but with plenty of Syrah colour and grip lendingsupport.<br/>Simon Field M.W. - RhÃ´ne Buyer
The Chave family have been involved in wine making in the northern Rhone since 1481.Jean Louis Chave is the cureent boss and an exponent of organic viticulture.Most of the domaine's holdings are in Hermitage but also operates as a negociant in other AOC's although he has bought some vineyards in Saint Joseph.
This is an absolute steal and a dead ringer for a CdP costing at least 2x as much. Stunning!
