Jean-Louis Chave 2012 Sélection Hermitage 'Farconnet'

Regular price £39
5 in stock

A bottle of Chave's estate Hermitage can set you back hundreds of pounds, but it is one of the world's greatest wines. Under the label 'J.L. Chave Sélection', Jean-Louis Chave also makes more affordable wines using (some) bought-in fruit which offer brilliant value.

Hermitage 'Farconnet' is a window on to the Chave style. While you wouldn't expect it to have all the depth and complexity of the £200 wine, it is a top quality Hermitage with the imprint of the master - ageworthy, balanced and full of energy.

Vines between 10 and 60 years old. A blend of estate wine which does not make it into the top Hermitage and bought-in fruit. 24 months in oak (20% new).
