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

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.

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.

Some purple. Dark red and black fruit, leather, tobacco. Light tannins. Very good.

100% Syrah. Brimming with blackberries and plums. Black pepper, graphite, smoked meat and tea, with an earthy note. Beautiful Northern Rhône wine. Wine Spectator awarded 93 points.
