Wine Description:
The Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc is an iconic white wine from the esteemed Hermitage appellation in France's Northern Rhône Valley. Made predominantly from Marsanne, with a small percentage of Roussanne, the wine is a benchmark for the region. Jean-Louis Chave, a scion of one of the Rhône's most venerable wine families, carefully manages the vineyards and adheres to traditional winemaking methods. The unique terroir of Hermitage, a blend of granite and limestone soils, lends the wine a complex mineral backbone. Aged in oak barrels, it gains additional layers of complexity, encompassing a bouquet of white flowers, stone fruits, and a touch of honey. This wine is a compelling example of what Rhône Valley whites can achieve. Read more

Wine Expert Note:

The Hermitage Blanc from Domaine Jean-Louis Chave is a masterclass in the power and grace of Rhône white wines. On the nose, it greets you with an opulent aroma of white peaches, honeysuckle, and a wisp of nutmeg. The palate is luxuriously textured, with flavors of ripe pear, apricot, and a subtle note of beeswax. What sets this wine apart is its balance: the richness is perfectly offset by an underpinning of fresh acidity and mineral depth. The finish is long and nuanced, with lingering notes of almond and a touch of white pepper. This is a white wine for red wine drinkers, substantial yet finessed, and it would shine exceptionally well with a range of rich cuisines. Read more

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
