Auction: Fine Wines - 3050B Location: Boston Date / Time: November 08, 2017 6:00PM

Description:

JL Chave Hermitage 1998
Northern Rhone
two wine stained labels
"The 1998 Hermitage is also gorgeous, yet has more concentration and depth. Described as a 'granite year' by Jean-Louis, this puppy has searing, liquid rock-like qualities to go with ample dark fruit, gunpowder and flint. Structured, firm and backward, yet with a rock-star mid-palate and finish, give it another 3-5 years and drink bottles through 2028." J. Dunnuck for TWA, 95+ pts. 08/14
6 bottles
Estimate $850-1,200
