J.L. Chave, ‘Mon Coeur’ 2017, Côtes du Rhône
Considered wine-making royalty the Chave family have been making wines in Northern Rhone since 1481. J.L Chave is part of their négociant line, where grapes are sourced from a small number of producers and then the wines are blended and vinified at one of his cellars. This wine represents an opportunity to experience Domaine Chave winemaking excellence at a much more approachable price tag. A blend of grenache and syrah, this ruby red wine possess plenty of sweet dark fruit – blackberry and cherry. It is smooth on the palate ending with a hint of spice. A perfect early winter warmer to enjoy with a roast.
