In the wine world, the name Jean Louis Chave needs no introduction. Chave, based in France's northern Rhone Valley, is widely considered one of the finest winemakers on the planet. His Hermitage Rouge and Blanc are among the most complex and long-lived wines of the appellation, and older vintages commonly bring high prices on the auction market. The Mon Coeur Cotes-du-Rhone is a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah, aged in cask for six months prior to bottling. Chave's deft winemaking skills show in the wonderfully perfumed nose and supple, elegant texture of the wine. If you've not had the pleasure of tasting one of Chave's Hermitage bottlings, you owe it to yourself to try a bottle (or several) of the Mon Coeur. You won't be disappointed.
