That 2015 is great vintage in the Rhone and particularly in the Northern Rhone is now well known and shrewd buyers have already taken positions. The classic estate of Yann Chave, with excellent but small holding in Hermitage with significant holding in Crozes-Hermitage representing great Chave value is no exception. Reference standard is his Crozes "Rouvre" from 60 year old vines and a stunning Hermitage. Yann loves his 1999s and feels 2015 is a repeat of that epic vintage.


The 2015 Hermitage, from the lieux-dits of Les Beaumes and Péleat, was aged entirely in new demi-muids. It's a full-bodied, rich wine that retains a sense of freshness with its mouthwatering flavors of cassis, blackberries and blueberries accented by hints of espresso, crushed stone and licorice. Nearly approachable now, it also shows some firm tannins on the finish, suggesting two decades of longevity.
