Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Hermitage Blanc 2001

RRP £169

A lovely vintage in the Southern and Northern Rhône, this is at a delicious stage of maturity. There are autumn leaves among the pear fruits, barley sugar, fresh mushroom and sparks of citrus. It’s very full-bodied, and still has plenty of freshness and fruit on your palate. This is classic mature Hermitage Blanc, so rich, complex and satisfying. A lovely time to drink, but will certainly develop further.
