LVT 2018 r 2018 wh An STGT domaine that produces supremely elegant wines with superb pedigree from the core of the Hermitage hill. Grand finesse and world class quality here. The reds can live for decades - around 30 years and occasionally even longer. They have softened up in recent vintages and drink from an earlier date than they used to. The Chaves make wonderful whites, their richness profound and captivating. They show particularly well from around six to seven years old, and benefit from that cellar age.
There are also handy Saint-Joseph reds that are fruited and stylish. They have gained body and grip as their vineyard has moved past 20 years old. From 2015 there has been a 3,000 bottle Saint-Joseph Clos Florentin red, based on 100 year old Syrah on the Clos de l'Arbalestrier which the Chaves bought in 2009. The J-L Chave Sélection range of Hermitage (Farconnet red, Blanche white), Saint-Joseph (Offerus red, Circa white) and Côtes du Rhône (Mon Coeur) are designed to be easy drinking, fun wines. The Mon Coeur 2018 captured the fruit-forward vintage very well, a **** w.o.w. wine.
