Give me a Chave (Sélection) any time. The nose has some thyme, blackberry and licorice. Smooth out of the gate with loads of dark fruit, a little eucalyptus and a pinch of pepper on the long finish. Tannins are perfectly integrated. 👌

bright, ripe purple and black fruits. fruitiness blows off quickly. comparatively lean palate, high acid, firm tannins want more time in bottle

Always solid and this was mid-age and ready to enjoy at a fair price.

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.
