    January 7, 2020 - The 91 really appealed to me, and was utterly soulful.

    (JL Chave Hermitage) A touch more closed than many other wines, although with time there is some dense fruit apparent, with an acidic raspberry character. Masculine, closed, and tannic on the palate, with good fruit. A slight oily-polyphenol edge to the delicious texture. Plenty of potential here.
