2012 Jean-Louis Chave "Mon Coeur"
- Cotes du Rhone
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
World-renowned Northern Rhône winemaker Jean-Louis Chave has ventured south of Montélimar to make this slick, mid-weight, négociant blend ‘Mon Coeur’. Jean-Louis sources the fruit for this wine from four organically-farmed estates in the Southern Rhône. Each lot is vinified and aged separately, in either oak or cement, for 12-18 months. The wine is true Chave, but in a different register, more like Châteauneuf than Hermitage, and for a fraction of the price.
A deliciously ripe blend of Grenache and Syrah, the Mon Coeur delivers a classic array of bright black cherry, black currant, violets, garrigue, and licorice on the nose.
Beautifully intense and rich aromatically, it doesn’t lose a beat on the palate. Medium to full-bodied and loaded with fruit, showcasing notable purity, a voluptuous texture, and big, mouth coating tannins that emerge on the finish of this profound and peppery Côtes-du-Rhône.
No one has given their opinion yet.
