Côtes-du-Rhône "Mon Coeur", Chave - 2022

Item # 11871 750mL

Jean-Louis Chave sources the fruit for this wine from some of the finest vineyards in the Southern Rhône. The wine is true Chave, but in a different register, more like Châteauneuf than Hermitage, and for a fraction of the price. A strong mineral component comes across without effort on this very fine red. Reserve for a special occasion over braised or grilled gigôt of lamb.

Staff Pick Notes

Côtes-du-Rhône "Mon Coeur", Chave 2017

J.L. Chave and his family before him make some of the most incredible Hermitage wines available. The domaine has an unbroken 16 generation lineage of winemakers going back to 1491! It’s exciting that such a legendary winemaker would would use his skills to produce a wine like “Mon Coeur” at this price point. Chave makes this wine with grapes sourced from 4 different terroir sites around Chateauneuf du Pape. The blend is roughly 50/50 Grenache and Syrah resulting in both dark black fruit like black currant and blackberry, and red fruit like strawberry. The unique terroir gives this wine minerality and subtle herb and spice notes. HW

Glossary

Grenache

The Grenache grape (a.k.a. Grenache Noir) produces relatively pale, fruity red wines that often stop just short of sweetness. Grenache is familiar to most wine drinkers as an ingredient in the blends of the Rhône and Languedoc-Roussillon, where it can add charm to varieties that are a little rougher around the edges. The distinguished Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas appellations are both characterized by significant percentages of Grenache, while in Tavel and Lirac the grape is used to make...

Rhône

Prestige in the north, value in the south: that’s the quick version of the Rhône story. Southern village appellations produce a dizzying stylistic range of delicious wines, while the prices for northern “trophy” bottles can be dizzyingly high. If you like smoky, leathery, earthy, macho red wines, however, the wines of the northern Rhône are well worth it. Prestigious northern Rhône appellations include Condrieu, Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, and St.-Joseph. In the southern Rhône, look to the village...

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it will produce. Typically, New World Shiraz yields bigger, fruitier wines than the the peppery Syrahs...
