J.L. Chave Sélection Côtes-du-Rhône “Mon Coeur” 2018

R264.99 inc. VAT
"Deep ruby-red. Smoke-accented cherry, dark berries and licorice on the perfumed nose, which takes on succulent floral and herb nuances with air. Smooth, concentrated and gently sweet, offering mineral- and spice-accented black raspberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors and a spicy jolt of cracked pepper. Finishes supple, sweet and quite long, with harmonious tannins and lingering florality." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

J.L. Chave Sélection Crozes-Hermitage “Silène” 2018

R345.00 inc. VAT
"Inky ruby. Pungent, mineral-accented black and blue fruit qualities on the nose, along with hints of olive, licorice and peony that build in the glass. Supple and weighty on the palate, offering expansive blackberry and boysenberry flavors that become firmer with air. The floral note comes back strong on the penetrating finish, which shows outstanding persistence and fine-grained, well-knit tannins. 60% of this fruit was sourced from the granitic soils and steep slopes in the northern sector of the appellation and the other 40% came from the south, where the soils are lighter, based mostly on limestone clay and covered in large alluvial stones and smaller river rocks." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Juicy and tightly focused in the mouth, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are underscored by suggestions of ginger and bitter quinine.

J.L. Chave Sélection Saint-Joseph Blanc “Circa” 2018

R395.00 inc. VAT
"Pale yellow. Powerful peach nectar, orange, honey and chamomile aromas show sharp definition and lift thanks to a smoky mineral flourish. Supple, silky and broad on the palate, offering ripe orchard and pit fruit flavors and a touch of sweet butter. The mineral quality repeats emphatically on the impressively long, seamless finish, which leaves behind a juicy Anjou pear note." - Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni's Vinous
