Domaine Jean-Louis Chave is a family owned winery. It has been passed from father to son since 1481. The Domaine is currently under the direction of Jean-Louis Chave, though his father, Gérard, is still around the domaine for occasional advice. When phylloxera hit in the 19th century, the family was obliged to move down to the Rhône valley to diversify into fruit farming, basing themselves in the village of Mauves where the cellars are today. It was at this time that a particularly smart ancestor decided to cross the Rhône river and lay claim to parcels of land on the hill of Hermitage. This blend of Grenache and Syrah comes from four parcels - two in the Gard west of the Rhone River, and two in the Vaucluse to the east. It shows warmth and spice, and plenty of red and black fruit, with easy tannins and moderate acidity. This wine makes a great pair with food, but is also delightful to drink on its own!
