JL Chave Selection Hermitage Farconnet 2016
100% Syrah. Jean-Louis Chave is probably the most coveted producer in the Northern Rhone and his wines are wanted the world over. The wines are simply stunning, there is no other way to put it. Though Chave does not own these vineyards, he farms then just like his estate vineyards. Nothing less is acceptable. The vines for this Hermitage range in age from 10-60 years old and comes from three different parcels, Diognières, Péleat, and Greffieux. All of this lends the wine spice, finesse, and structure while making it such a great value. The Farconnet is truly wonderful and a venerable expressions of the purest of Rhône terroir.
"Saturated ruby. Mineral- and spice-accented aromas of fresh dark berries, licorice and candied violet show excellent delineation, clarity and lift. At once rich and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy black raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors that steadily deepen on the back half. Turns sweeter on the persistent, penetrating finish, which features well-knit tannins and lingering floral and exotic spice notes. This is quite graceful, and while it will no doubt reward patience, it's awfully easy to drink now." - Josh Raynolds
