Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Hermitage Blanc 2012

RRP £184

At seven years of age this is starting to move into a secondary stage of evolution, taking on honeyed notes among the flowers and quince fruit. On your palate, there’s more quince and poached pear, it’s full-bodied with a good sense of richness. It has a gently granular feel in the mouth that brings some relief and interest to the texture.
