Cotes du Rhone Mon Coeur 16
Mon Coeur ("my heart") is a unique Jean-Louis Chave wine not just because of the appellation, but because of its grape sources. Eight excellent vineyards in the areas of Valreas, Visan and Buisson all chosen for their low yields and exceptional quality of fruit where used. Elegant and aromatic, the outstanding 2016 has a dense textured palate, ripe and fruit-forward and with a pleasing lick of pepper at the finish. Drink now to 2021.
