Jean-Louis Chave l'Hermitage Rouge 2021, 0.75L

Region: Hermitage, Rhône, France
Varietal: Syrah
Classification:
Importer: Shiverick Imports
Score: 96DM
Review: "A tasting of the constituent lieux-dits before blending was as instructive as ever. Péléat was smooth, silky and red-fruited with good acidity; Beaumes slightly meatier, a little less concentrated than a typical year, but with good tannic drive; L'Ermite was serious, dry and mineral; Bessards very strict, with tight, rigid tannins. The final blend is likely to produce a structural rather than generous style of Hermitage, with tannins that will need a long time in bottle to settle. This will be ascetic in youth, then complex and textural with age."
