  • J.L. Chave Selection Hermitage Blanche 2018


    “By now it’s no secret that Erin Cannon-Chave and Jean-Louis Chave’s semi-négociant operation is producing a range of consistently excellent wines that clearly show the Chave magic at user-friendly prices. While the Hermitage Blanc Blanche will inevitably be compared to the white Hermitage from the J.L. Chave domaine, the wines that intrigue me are that Crozes-Hermitage Blanc and Saint-Joseph Blanc since neither of those appellations are present under the family’s estate label. There may be a domaine Saint-Joseph Blanc, someday, “that’s probably a job that’ll wait for our children to take on,” Chave told me.”

  • J.L. Chave Selection Hermitage Farconnet 2018


    “Rhone wine lovers are well aware by now that these wines, produced by Erin Cannon-Chave and Jean-Louis Chave, deliver excellent value and consistently high quality, which is no surprise given Jean-Louis’s winemaking talents. That said, the Chaves are quick to point out that this isn’t a “Chave Lite” project and the intent isn’t to mimic the work of the family domaine, even if quite a bit of the fruit used here comes from the Chaves’ own vineyards. The wines are widely distributed and, for the most part, quite approachable on release, making them excellent restaurant wine list choices.”
