Hermitage Blanc

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Hermitage Blanc, 1991

RRP £154

A great year in the Northern Rhône. This is becoming fresh again, with chamomile, verbena and linden flower. There’s a subtle petrol note that’s reminiscent of aged Riesling. On your palate there’s a gentle nutty element, hazelnut. Acidity is low, and the palate is generous and flowing – freshness and liveliness come from a saline edge and a positive bitter kick on the finish.
