Hermitage, Yann Chave (Magnum), 150cl
Yann Chave's commitment to organic agriculture has been applied to his entire vineyard, and is the well-explored, well-measured choice of a technician: concerned for the quality of raw material produced. Today, he defends organic production in the name of societal responsibility and the transmission he believes in, for his children and future generations.
His 2015 Hermitage is quite something, full and generous on the palate, the mid-palate reveals rich aromas of ripe fruit and a hint of smokiness, the tannins are dense and intense, but with great finesse, giving the wine imposing structure and a long finish. A truly superb wine & one that although stunning now will further develop over the next decade & more.
Try with roast duck breast fillet, creamy polenta, Grilled Mezenc rib steak with truffled mashed potatoes.
