2007 Hermitage

By Jean-Louis Chave

2007 Hermitage from Jean-Louis Chave, Rhône, Rest of the World

In the world where wine investing waits for extraordinary wines, the 2007 Hermitage from Jean-Louis Chave steps grandly into the spotlight. This bountiful year in the Rhône valley brought a vintage that personifies both the strength and suavity of this esteemed winemaking family.

 

A Story of Strength and Elegance

In 2007, a year of consistent climatic conditions marked by steady heat saw the Syrah grapes mature optimally on the granite-based slopes of Hermitage hill. The resultant wine is a robust yet finesse-driven example of all that the Rhône valley can offer.

A composition of generosity and structure, tasting this magnificent wine will introduce you to eloquently woven notes of blackberry, cherry liqueur, smoky minerals and dried flowers. The palate is sensational - a complex Wedgewood of raw power, remarkable precision and an endearing elegance that intriques many a serious investor.

 

Climatic Conditions, Quality Wine

The 2007 vintage can easily be viewed as a tale of two halves; the first part of the season was defined by balanced rainfall while summer was beautifully warm without scorching extremes. This sequential dance between sky and vine has proven to be ideal for Syrah in Rhone, with Jean-Louis Chave harnessing these conditions exquisitely in his 2007 Hermitage.

Given its notable aging potential, it displays impressive depth revealing itself through layers of sultry fruit and earthy undertones. The tannins are softening but stand as supportive pillars ensuring further development for another decade or more. This is indeed an investment-worthy bottle deserving of a place in any connoisseur's cellar.

The 2007 Hermitage from Jean-Louis Chave paints a prolific testament of the producer’s skill and the superb vintage climate. One might say, it's like capturing an unforgettable opera performance along Rhône’s stunning slopes, forever encapsulated in a single bottle.
