Jean-Louis Chave, Hermitage 1997

The Chave family is nothing short of royalty in the world of wine. The current Jean-Louis is the 16th generation in father-son succession to have tended vines in St. Joseph and on the fabled hill of Hermitage, possibly the birthplace and arguably the pinnacle of the syrah grape. While several producers now separate out their various plots in Hermitage (perhaps a nod to the more marketing-savvy neighbors in Côte-Rôtie), Chave is all about the art of blending together these components into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. The result is a wine that captures the soul of Hermitage: structured and full, with hauntingly wild and floral aromas.
