    Wine review by Nathan P


  • This is the second part in a three part series on wine prices over the past decade. Part one can be found here, and today I follow up with part two, a look at Tuscan wines and the wines of the Rhone Valley. I love Tuscan wines and I love Sangiovese. Pure, fresh, fruity and austere all at once, it’s one of the greatest food wines on the planet, a... Read More

  • Jean Louis Chave Selection St Joseph Blanc Celeste 2009

    Snoothrank:

    It is always a joy to drink this wine. I love its purity and find it to be one of the most exciting expressions of the Northern Rhône's most impressive white grape, Roussanne, that doesn't break the bank. Read More

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1996

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed sweet floral notes, black tea, stony minerals, earth, black pepper and a hint of parchment. On the palate, it was velvety and savory with excellent balance showing sour berries, black soil, bell pepper and leather. The finish was beautifully smooth and lasting. Read More

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Huge, floral nose. Stoney and green. Light bodied, high acid, heavyish tannins. A little elusive for me. May have wanted food. Read More

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Super fine, subtle game and herb notes, smoky dried beef, limestone dust, stem and smoke, like a pillow around my head. Bright and finely balanced, this is so elegant with great inner mouth energy. This is layered and bright, showing raspberry, light rare beef and spicy floral tones on a palate. Shows nice flesh growing to frame the acid. Lovely... Read More

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Like a new car on the savory nose - leathery with a hint of gasoline and that unidentified yet super recognizable new car smell. Smoother in mouth. A little fruit and some stronger savory notes. Olive? Rubber? Tasty but hard to place. Read More

  • Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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. Read More

    Decant for an hour. Spice, black fruit attack red fruit mid palate sexy tannin finish. Read More
