97` Chave Hermitage

Postby Blake Brown » Sat Oct 15, 2016 4:23 am

1997 DOMAINE JEAN-LOUIS CHAVE HERMITAGE- 375 ml; while dining solo at Tour d`Argent, this was the somms choice for the duck course I ordered and it was perfectly paired as well as a stand alone treat; the color was a still youthful dark garnet; this bottle was seamless and had full bodied pleasure with depth and complexity served up in a creamy, rich texture; the layers of the taste profile kept unfolding with mostly blackberry and black currant showing up along with a hint of bacon, leather and licorice; a splendid performance from a recommendation that usurped my initial selection of a red Burgundy.

I hope you're loving your trip to France! if I remember correctly, I liked the view, more than the food at Tour d'Argent. I am a big fan of 97 Chave Hermitage. I still have several bottles and agree, they are showing well.

Are you going anyplace outside of Paris?
