Hermitage Rouge

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Hermitage Rouge, 2005

RRP £405

Big, bold and brawny, this is classic Hermitage in all it’s power and pomp. It has a great sense of ripeness and is still full of sap. It’s a full-throttle Hermitage, perhaps less elegant than some vintages, but joyfully red-cheeked. It’s still thick with slightly blocky tannins, and would benefit from another few years in bottle before really showing its best. Loud and proud.
