Popped and poured; a follow-up to the 2015 Domaine des Thalabert. Mostly blue and black fruits with violets on the nose. Blue fruit and black pepper on the palate. This was comparatively a touch thinner, less powerful and lacks the complexity of the Thalabert. Still a really good bottle though.

Fruit driven, showing variety salt berries at first, but never far from provenance with an underlying red fruit character, defined savory character and fresh well built and structured palate. Falling a bit short on the finishes but great QPR. Drinks well, yet built for a positive development.

This wine leaves me with the question: Why the heck do I not drink northern Rhône every night? Chave is as good as it gets and this is his lower end stuff.. it’s still amazing. Smells like delicious charcoal burning when you fire up the grill.. olive brine, beautiful texture, dried floral aromatics. Dark and ripe in the glass, showing the ripeness of the vintage.. beautiful balance. This guy just keeps impressing. Go get some.

Solid for the price. Dark fruit, herbs de Provence, medium plus acid and a touch of Brett that adds a gaminess and charm to the wine in this case.
