Jean-Louis Chave Selections Cotes du Rhone Mon Coeur French Red Wine 750 mL


SPECIFICATIONS Wine: J.L. Chave Sélection Côtes-duRhône “Mon Coeur”
Varietals: 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre/Cinsault Vineyard Age: 20-60 years
Visan: This area became a papal possession in 1344 and enjoys
exclusive status to this day. It is effectively an enclave, a piece
of Vaucluse surrounded by the département of Drôme. Planted in
clay-limestone soils, the vines yield red wines that are stylish and elegant.

Vinsobres: Situated on the plateau of Vinsobres to the southeast of
the village of Valréas, this vineyard lies in the middle of an area known
as the “Enclave des Papes”. The vines (100% Syrah) are planted
at nearly 900 feet in altitude on a clay soil which is extremely rich in
limestone. Due to its high altitude and septentrional location, the vineyard
yields a wine with incredible purity,
definition, and focus.

Cairanne: Located very near the
Enclave des Papes, Cairanne is a small village with a classic
Mediterranean climate that produces full-flavored red wines. It was promoted to cru status in early 2016.

Rasteau: Used in select vintages. One of the best regions in Côtes-du-Rhône,
Rasteau is located in the northern part of the appellation and is known for its
concentrated wines, with these grapes adding structure and weight to the blend.


Winemaker Notes

The Chave family is based in a small village on the northern right bank of the Rhone. There have been Chaves growing vines on the famous Hermitage hill since 1481. Gerard Chave took over from his father in 1970 and rapidly achieved megastar status due to the extraordinary quality of his wines and has since passed on the winemaking responsibilities to his son Jean-Louis. Their unmatched meticulousness continues through five centuries to render venerable expressions of the purest of Rhône terroir.

Since the 1990s, Jean-Louis Chave has offered a second label known as ‘J.L. Chave Sélection’ that provides a glimpse of the reason for the estate’s fame at a fraction of the price. Many of these wines are from declassified estate wine and long term farming contracts, and are vinified in the domaine’s primary cellar in Mauves.
