  • Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Cotes du Rhone 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Needs some time to open up. At first it seems overly spicy, burnt, with unbalanced tannin and coffee notes. Buy after it calms down it had a nice velvety mouthfeel without losing the spice. Read More

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1996

    Snoothrank:

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1989

    Snoothrank:

    This is very animale and agressively smokey in the glass with a core of black earthy fruit lurking underneath. Slowly notes of parsley root and a deeply imbedded green streak emerge from the dense cocoa tinged core. Offering excellent integration on the palate, this is a smaller scaled Chave more in line with vintages like 1995 and 1985 than som... Read More
