Domaine Jean-Louis Chave, Saint-Joseph 2011

RRP £58

Blueberry, violet and cooked blackberries, this is perfectly ready to drink now as it starts to take on notes of bonfire cinders and cigar tobacco. Still generous and rich in body, with full, ripe tannins and a sense of energy and sap. Not a big wine, but one with good definition and precision. A great success for what’s not generally considered to be a strong vintage in the Northern Rhône.
