J.L. Chave Selection 2012 Cotes du Rhone, "Mon Coeur," Rhone Valley, France
Vinous.com rating: 90..."(a blend of 60% grenache and 40% syrah): Youthful purple color. Ripe dark berry and cherry-cola scents are enlivened by a peppery quality and a hint of violet. Round and fleshy on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and cassis flavors and a zesty spine of acidity. Finishes long and spicy, with building sweetness, soft tannins and a hint of smokiness."
