Domaine Trapet (jean Et Jean Louis)

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Hermitage Syrah 1995

Taken to Bicyclette in Carmel. Gave it 5 hrs in a decanter. Dark but bright red color. Amazing nose. Notes of black and red fruit, slate stone, spice, menthol and dark soil. Perfect balance of fruit, structure and acidity in the mouth. Tannins mostly softened. This was in the zone. Easily had 10-15 more years of peak enjoyment in front of it. Bravo! — 2 days ago

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Brouilly Gamay 2020

Ruby red; red berries, mineral, and bit gamy on the open nose; palate a little chewy with bright raspberry and cherry fruit supported with spicy accents. This is much more energetic than rich. — 18 days ago

Ripe orange, mint, light caramel, and buttery glycerol. So smooth. So fresh. Mouth coating. Hidden but whispering florals; peony and violet(?) Interminable finish.

Great producer. I have always enjoyed any of their wines whatever the vintage 👍🏻

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

J.L. Chave Sélection Hermitage Blanche Marsanne Roussanne 2015

Toasted coconut, custard with white peach, wool, mallow, mango and a hint of coconut. Good mineral tension. Resonant, creamy. Fantastic texture, in a nice spot. I love how whenever I open a bottle of this, I have doubts on day one but by three or four they are a perfume factory. — a month ago

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2014


This has evolved nicely since I had it a few years ago. The heat is gone and the ripeness has given way to herbal aromas, dried cherries, raspberries, pepper notes, hint of lavender and smoke. Wonderful freshness, length and balance. Good stuff. — a month ago
