Domaine Yann Chave Le Rouvre Crozes-Hermitage 2020

Crozes-Hermitage AOC

It’s surprising that a winemaker as consistently brilliant as Chave could have managed to fly under the radar for so long. But now word is out. This top vintage 2020 is rich, concentrated with layers of bramble fruit and savoury, herbal complexity.

Yann Chave is hot property. His wines are listed by all top Michelin-starred French chefs, Bocuse, Ducasse and Troisgros among them. His Le Rouvre is always impressive, as good as many a Hermitage, and here from a vintage with wines that "provide huge amounts of pleasure, straight out of the gate" (Decanter). It has a haunting nose of cracked pepper and olive tapenade with swathes of black cherry and wild herbs. Remarkably smooth and balanced, so it'll not only drink beautifully in youth but will age gracefully, too. All the Syrah grapes are from magnificent near-60-year-old vines grown near the Pont de l’Isère. Only free-run juice goes into this exclusive cuvée, which is matured in large oak barrels. Superb with lamb or a herby casserole.

"Full-bodied and concentrated, with layers of rich, velvety tannins, long, licorice-tinged finish" Joe Czerwinski
