    April 23, 2022 - 86 was not the best of years for Chave. This bottle was well past its drinking window. Purchased on release and well stored ever since. Red fruits fading, tannins and acids resolved. Some leather, earthiness. Love Chave but this should have been enjoyed earlier. My last bottle.

    July 6, 2020 - Fully mature, benefited from 30 minutes of air before drinking. Really nice, resolved tannins, mellow. Love this.

    July 19, 2016 - The bottle was in fine shape, but tonight this vintage of Chave didn't move any of us.

    July 18, 2016 - Very savoury nose of leather, truffle, earth and tar. It is full in the mouth with vinous sweetness, a suggestion of cocoa and plenty of meatiness. The texture is fine and lacy and persistence is excellent.
