Domaine Yann Chave Le Rouvre Crozes-Hermitage 2018

Crozes-Hermitage AOC

It’s surprising that a winemaker as consistently brilliant as Chave could have managed to fly under the radar for so long. But now word is out. This top vintage 2018 is rich, concentrated with layers of bramble fruit and savoury, herbal complexity.

Yann Chave is hot property. His wines are listed by all top Michelin starred French chefs, Bocuse, Ducasse and Troisgros among them. We’re delighted with the 2018 Le Rouvre, which is as impressive as many a Hermitage and from a vintage that most winemakers only dream of. It has a haunting nose of cracked pepper and olive tapenade with swathes of black cherry and wild herbs. Remarkably smooth and balanced, so it'll not only drink beautifully in youth but age gracefully, too. Crafted from Syrah, the fruit is all from magnificent near-60 year old vines grown near the Pont de l’Isère. Only free run juice goes into this exclusive cuvée, which is fermented and aged in large oak barrels. Reserve for a fine piece of lamb or a herby casserole.
