Description:

JL Chave Hermitage Rouge 2006
Northern Rhone
slightly protruding cork, capsule intact
"Superior to the 2007, the 2006 Hermitage reminds me of Chave's brilliant 1991. An incredibly subtle perfume of black raspberries, creme de cassis, camphor, and acacia flowers is followed by an elegant, concentrated wine with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin, wood, and alcohol. This seamless, gorgeously-proportioned, large-framed wine represents the definition of finesse, elegance, and terroir. It will be drinkable in several years, and should last for 20-25 years." R. Parker for TWA, 96 pts. 04/09
1 bottle
Estimate $150-200
