Joe Czerwinski (1418073) Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 2014 WS 96 » $269 "This starts strong, with warm ganache, steeped fig and crushed blackberry flavors, then gains steam… as the wine drives and expands through the finish." James Molesworth (1418055) Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc 2015 J d 100 » $400 "The 2015 Hermitage Blanc is a perfect wine and certainly one of the greatest whites ever made from this hallowed estate." Jeb Dunnuck (1419042) H OL di NG TH e Ma NTL e OF iCON Leading the charge in the Northern Rhone is the venerable house of Jean-Louis Chave, a family that has been heavily involved in winemaking for over five centuries. e very region needs and deserves an icon, and the Chave family is happy to hold that mantle. It's not just on the historic Hermitage hill that they have made their mark, but also stretching to the Saint Joseph appellation, where Jean- l ouis Chave believes the future of the Rhone will be revealed. Chave excels within both appellations, delivering tremendous relative value from Saint Joseph, while continuing to push the limits of what is possible from their prestigious holdings on the Hermitage hill. No matter the location, terroir or variety, both red and white, Jean- l ouis Chave has, without a doubt, mastered them all. ✦
