Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc 2002
|Brand||Domaine Jean-Louis Chave|
Wine SpectatorLovely notes of lemon curd, crème fraîche, bitter almond and dried peach and pineapple run through a long, creamy finish. As beautiful as the flavors are, the texture and drive through the finish are even better. Really gorgeous feel. Drink now through 2020. 900 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2002 Hermitage blanc exhibits abundant amounts of acacia flowers, honeyed citrus, and a hint of orange marmalade in a ripe, elegant, medium-bodied style. Because of its low acidity, it is best consumed during its first 5-7 years of life. What Chave accomplished in the extremely challenging 2002 vintage is unquestionably noteworthy. Not because of tiny yields and small grapes, but due to Chave's decision to eliminate every grape except the very best, 2002 is a small crop.
