This Hermitage Blanc comes from (4) different lieu dits within the appellation of Hermitage in the Norther Rhone - l’Ermite, Les Rocoules, Maison Blanche and Peleat. It is a blend of approximately 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussane that has been aged in wood barrels. Very potent on the nose and palate with honeysuckle, green apple, lemon curd, almond, butter, and lemon-tangerine citrus. Very rich and lengthy with plenty of concentration to last at least two decade. Clape himself says gastronomes will understand this wine - it is a spectacular food wine.

The Chave family have been wine growers in the northern Rhône since 1481. Currently, Gérard and son Jean-Louis manage the estate, representing 16 generations of unbroken lineage. Both are dedicated to the production of some of the finest Syrah, Marsanne, and Roussanne in the world. Jean Louis joined his father in 1992 after completing studies at University of Connecticut, followed by a degree in oenology at University of California, Davis. It was at that time that he completely replanted vineyards on the family’s original estate in Saint-Joseph, which had earlier been abandoned since the 1900’s when phylloxera hit the region.

The key to perfect balance in Chave’s Hermitage is in their remarkable blending skill - repeated every season. The Chave estate is certified organic.
