DOMAINE JEAN-LOUIS CHAVE HERMITAGE 1983 (3)

Rhône.
u. 2 x 1 cm. 1x scraped label

Chave has always loved the 1983 (a sentiment I share, but the tannin in the wine is worrisome). It seems to me that his 1983 has the potential to be super, but it still remains charmless and austere. Deep dark ruby in color with some amber at the edge, it has a profound concentration of ripe, smoky, berry fruit and Asian spices, full body, exceptional depth and length, as well as a formidable tannin level. December 1993 WA 93
