Hermitage Blanc

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Hermitage Blanc, 2017

RRP £248

A very rich and full-bodied vintage of Chave’s Hermitage Blanc, very rounded and flowing. It coats your palate, is certainly low in acidity but is nonetheless vibrant and vital. It’s deeply flavoursome, with almond, caramel, macadamia and candied citrus peels. The finish is very long. Even for a Hermitage Blanc, this is decidedly opulent, and will last for decades. An unmistakably grand cru wine of great presence and resonance.
