For 48 hours and shipping now, this is an extremely limited offering by arguably the finest Rhone producer, Domaine Jean-Louis Chave. If you like Rhone reds,
namely Syrah, you should not pass on this limited offering:
"Chave is one of the elite domaines in the Northern Rhone." Wine Spectator
The world's most celebrated Syrahs come from the Rhone Valley with recognizable sub-regions such as Hermitage and Cote-Rotie, which are known for their robust style along with their well-deserved hefty price-tag.
Indeed, Chave's Hermitage
is so collectible, every top wine list in the world clamors for this limited red. But at $280 per bottle (and on any given weekend), we'd rather enjoy his highly prized and limited St. Joseph, saving his Hermitage for special occasions. "For my money, the best combination of value and distinctiveness is currently found in St. Joseph..." Eric Asimov, New York Times
Gorgeous richness and depth, there is a layer of mineral, ground pepper and crushed rock along with juicy black currants. These intoxicating flavors come from the steeply sloped granite soil, which can only be harvested by hand. Enjoy now or cellar for another decade - if you can wait that long!
