The roots of the Chave estate can be traced back to 1472. They have 15h/a on Hermitage and own vines on 9 of the 18 climates. The soils are a mixture of decomposed granite , gravel and clay. The wine is aged in a combination of Foudres and small casks for 18-24 months. 100% Syrah. The defining skill of Jean Louis is his precision on blending.
