Yann Chave, Northern Rhône
Grape Varieties: Syrah
Possessing terrific notes of crème de cassis, vanilla bean, toasted spice and classic Hermitage powdered-rock-like minerality, it’s medium to full-bodied, concentrated and textured, with building tannin and vibrant acidity that emerges on the finish. It shows textbook Hermitage character.
