Yann Chave joined his father Bernard at the family winery in 1996 and swiftly set about expanding and improving the estate. Today, the domaine extends over 20 hectares, including 1.15 hectares on the hill of Hermitage itself, and is certified organic in its entirety. Vinification is meticulous. The fruit is 100% destemmed and then fermented and macerated for 20-25 days in stainless steel vats, followed by ageing for 9-12 months in either stainless steel or 650 litre oak casks.
A characterful, complex blend of fruit from vineyards in both the northern and southern sectors of the appellation. The average age of the vines is now over 25 years and this is a rich, generous example of creamy, ripe syrah. Carefully extracted tannins give fine structure. A lovely, complete Crozes that is already delicious to drink but will age gracefully. Drink 2022-2028.
