About this Item

Hermitage Rouge, 2012
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
The Chave family, now 16 generations strong, has been producing wine since 1481. Managed by Jean-Louis, Chave produces the greatest Hermitage wines in the world. They are regarded as royalty in terms of French winemaking and follow a very traditional winemaking approach. Renowned for their blending skill, Chave has never released a single vineyard wine.

Critics Ratings

‘Deep ruby. Sweet and complex aromas on the nose, impossible to tease apart but there’s a peppery sweetness, a hint of cigar box and bags of sweet bramble fruit. On the palate, more savoury and super-fresh. There’s tension at the core but clothed in smooth if compact tannins. Generous but structured too. Long with just a hint of leather on the finish.’ - Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20 (Dec 2017)
