J.l. Chave Sélection Crozes-Hermitage Silene 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Sourced from the very best villages in the Southern Rhône, namely Valréas,Vinsobres and Rasteau, this is a fantastic Côtes Du Rhône , 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. - Rhône Buyer

This is an absolute steal and a dead ringer for a CdP costing at least 2x as much. Stunning!

ST: Fresh strawberry and raspberry on the nose. Silky red fruits, with no obvious tannins and a long, sweet finish.
