1998 Domaine Jean Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc
Price: $185.00

(95 points) (Highly Recommended) Deep and intense, it powers its way through the palate, delivering bursts of fruit and

earth. Silky and full-bodied, with distinctive personality, this ripe, thick and well-made white has earthy, smoky, bread

dough and beeswax complexity. (8/2002) Wine Spectator


1971 Chave Hermitage

1988 Domaine JL Chave Hermitage MAGNUM
Price: $1400.00

(93 Points) Even more closed than the 1989 and 1990, this opaque, dark ruby/purple-colored wine reveals a tightly knit

nose of cassis, minerals, and tar. Full-bodied, with superb concentration, the 1988 Chave Hermitage exhibits more

astringent, tougher tannin than either the 1989 or 1990. While it appears more structured, it has nowhere near the

weight and dazzling opulence of its two younger siblings. Nevertheless, this is a superb Hermitage. Anticipated maturity:

2000-2020. Last tasted 6/96. Rhone Book Jan 1997

1990 Domaine JL Chave Hermitage
Price: $1250.00

(99 Points) The brilliant wine making of Gerard Chave, now assisted by his highly talented son, Jean-Louis, has turned

out as successful 1992s and 1993s as any producer in the northern Rhone. The white Hermitage includes about 15%

Roussanne, which is being fermented in new oak barrels to give the wine more definition and structure. This has always

been one of the great white Hermitages made, and in top vintages it is capable of aging for 30+ years. It is a wine that

takes on greater life and complexity when drunk with intensely flavored food...
