Red wine

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Saint-Joseph 2017

RRP £82.80

Fresh, distinctly fruity but not exuberantly so. There’s a gently woody, but not oaky, vein that runs through it. It has a tight frame and a very upright feel – still feels on the stiff side for now but will relax in time. A relatively tannic vintage, with plenty of grip, accentuated with a saline finish. Coming from the imposing 2017 vintage, this could be opened already, but it would be worthwhile waiting for a year or two. Savoury, sinewy.
