JL CHAVE SELECTION Crozes-Hermitage Silene 2017

See the wine detail page

92 Points

A gem of a Côtes Du Rhône, the 2017 Mon Coeur from the Chave family sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as a ripe, perfumed bouquet of black raspberries, garrigue, melted licorice, and ground pepper. This medium to full-bodied, exuberant, undeniably sumptuous 2017 is ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years.
