2018 J.L. Chave Selection "Silène" Crozes-Hermitage

SKU #1471549 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Pungent, mineral-accented black and blue fruit qualities on the nose, along with hints of olive, licorice and peony that build in the glass. Supple and weighty on the palate, offering expansive blackberry and boysenberry flavors that become firmer with air. The floral note comes back strong on the penetrating finish, which shows outstanding persistence and fine-grained, well-knit tannins. 60% of this fruit was sourced from the granitic soils and steep slopes in the northern sector of the appellation and the other 40% came from the south, where the soils are lighter, based mostly on limestone clay and covered in large alluvial stones and smaller river rocks. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

Outer quote mark Moving to the two Northern Rhône reds, the 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Silene sports a dense purple/ruby color as well as classy notes of blackberries, smoked meat, ground pepper, and a touch of game. With medium-bodied richness, a rounded, silky mouthfeel, and terrific balance, enjoy this little gem of a Syrah over the coming 7-8 years. Inner quote mark (11/2020)
