Dark peppery blue and black. Solid and good now. This is always a QPR wine... and it's Chave.

Ripe upfront, with enduring black fruit, peppery cured meats and mineral back bone. Among the beat $25 reds in the world?

definitely needed to open. Earthy earthy at first then finally opening to include dried bing cherries, mint/herbal and meat.

Leads with smoke and meat. Followed by blackberries, black plums, and black pepper. A slight touch of funk. So f’ing good.

Varm, pepprig, mörkbärig, intensivt blodig med blyerts och sten.

If i needed a wine to serve to a big group of people with a wide variety of experience and tastes, this would be it. Not too geeky, nice balance of fruit and earth, medium minus well-integrated tannins, nice body to keep you warm on a chilly evening. Paired well with duck bolognese and warm bread pudding.

Smooth and lush with rocky, minerality. Needed some Chave in my life!

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.
