The Chave family is based in a small village on the northern right bank of the Rhone. There have been Chaves growing vines on the famous Hermitage hill since 1481. Gerard Chave took over from his father in 1970 and rapidly achieved megastar status due to the extraordinary quality of his wines and has since passed on the winemaking responsibilities to his son Jean-Louis. Their unmatched meticulousness continues through five centuries to render venerable expressions of the purest of Rhône terroir.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"A year-in, year-out smoking value as well as a great bottle of wine, the 2021 Côtes du Rhône Mon Coeur checks in as equal parts Grenache and Syrah brought up in neutral oak. Its vivid ruby hue is followed by a medium-bodied, elegant, lively red offering pretty red and black berry fruits, some spring flowers, peppery herbs, and gamey nuances, fine tannins, and nicely integrated acidity. Coming from a cooler year, it still brings plenty of richness and depth and is well worth seeking out." - JD (May 2023)

90 Points - Wine Spectator:
Dark and brooding, with a dense core of black fruit and melted black licorice set against a savory wave of salty minerality and tapenade. Singed apple wood imparts an appealing smokiness, with spicy and meaty notes playing out on the medium-length finish. Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2027. 5,900 cases imported.
