Cellar/Tasting Notes
A pure delight!

The power, perfume and elegance of this tradititionally made Hermitage is clearly exhibited. The secret to the remarkable balance is in the blending skills of Jean-Louis Chave. He, like his father Gerard did before him, gathers the vintage cuvees to create singular blends of great nuance, harmony, depth and aging potential. The Syrah from Bressards is the staple of Chave Hermitage regardless of the components each year.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 95
"The spectacular 2007 Hermitage boasts a dense purple color along with notes of creme de cassis, loamy soil, crushed rocks and acacia flowers, a rare opulence and a full-bodied style. Reminiscent of the 1991 Hermitage (a great vintage for Chave as well as most top producers in Hermitage), it should drink well for 20-25 years."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 95-96
"I tasted this wine in three components from stainless steel tanks, where it was awaiting bottling this winter. #1: Red berries and flowers on the nose, with strong mineral and floral notes and Asian spices. #2: More masculine and brooding, offering deep cherry compote and blackcurrant scents and suggestions of licorice and black cardamom. Smoky dark fruit flavors are framed by chewy tannins and pick up sweeter red berry qualities with air. The finish is sweet and penetrating, with a strong echo of black raspberry. #3: Fresh raspberry and cherry on the nose, with notes of smoked meat, minerals and violet. Supple, mineral-laced red fruit flavors are joined by allspice and violet pastille on the back. Very fresh sample with strong finishing lift and spiciness. Looks to be an excellent wine that will provide plenty of pleasure on the (relatively) young side."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"Tight but already alluring, with gorgeous fig cake and warm cocoa aromas slowly yielding to a dark, dense core of plum, blueberry, hoisin sauce, currant reduction and maduro tobacco. Muscular but supervelvety, with a long finish."
