“[Chave] could make a fair claim to be France’s winemaking royal family: in no other of France’s great terroirs is the largest individual landholder so deeply rooted in time and place, so supremely competent, and so modest a custodian of the insights and craftsmanship of the past.” – Andrew Jefford, The New France

In addition to their legendary Hermitage bottlings, Chave also makes a wonderful, traditionally-styled St. Joseph rouge from vines that date back to the early 1900s.

93 points Wine Advocate: “The 2012 Saint Joseph, which was just bottled, showed beautifully, and I continue to see more and more terrific, world-class wines from this appellation. Exhibiting terrific blackberry, ground pepper, crushed rock and underbrush, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has an open, sexy style that’s already hard to resist. Drink it over the coming decade.”
