    December 26, 2019 - 2019- Before decanting: intense pallet with graphite and tannins. Unforgiving.

    After Decanting for 2 hrs- The nose is a bouquet of dark fruits and spice. Dark garnet color. The pallet is really tight with a spicy finish. Long mouth.

    December 13, 2019 - This was toe to toe with ‘01 at first, ultimately surpassed it. Where the ‘01 shut down in the glass this cruised along. Opulent and pure, this is reference standard juice.

    December 12, 2019 - Beautiful ruby color. Masculine, dark fruit, autumn leaves and smoked meat. Burgundian weight. Still has nervous, youthful energy but starting to come together. There is a lovely ripe stem element on the finish. Will drink well for another 10 to 15 years at least. I just love the weight, poise, clarity and purity of the wine’s from Chave. (93)

    November 23, 2019 - Medium dark red; light fruity caramel; rounded, well balanced, a bit of caramel, nice flavours, a bit of candy; tasted against Saint Joseph same year, Hermitage more complex, more feminine, more lively, more going on in the aftertaste

    August 31, 2019 - Domaine Louis Chave Hermitage 2007.
    Lukter trøffel!
    Kjøtt, mørk frukt, urter.
    Fascinerende på duft.
    Begynnende modning i frukten.
    Mørk og kraftfull, men ikke uten eleganse.
    Bra nå, men ser for meg at det er enda mer å hente her.
    Lineær kurve med flott utgang.
    Presis og kjempelang med fine bestemte tanniner. 93-94p
    Kveldens desidert beste match med due og sopp.
