Hermitage 1999 Jean Louis Chave 75cl / 13%
A bottle of 1999 Hermitage from producer Jean-Louis Chave, grown in the north of the Rhône valley on one of France's steepest vineyards.
Hermitage AOC is an appellation in the northern Rhone valley, producing red wine from the Syrah grape variety.
'The 1999 Hermitage is another classic wine from this estate that shows a more mineral-laced, cooler, aristocratic style that just screams Hermitage. Offering extraordinary notes of blackcurrants, wet granite, tobacco, graphite, and a touch of spice, it has plenty of tannins, full-bodied richness, a focused, chiselled style, and a stunning finish. This was a vintage that closed down slightly after release and is just now starting to show at its peak. You can safely enjoy bottles any time over the coming 15 years or more. 96/100' Jeb Dunnuck, tasted 2020
