Tasting through the component parts of the 2001 Hermitage reveals what should be an outstanding wine with a Burgundian-like finesse. The most elegant component emanates from Les Beaumes and Pelia, and the denser, thicker wines from Meal, l’Ermite, and Bessards. The wine will possess a dense rubypurple color in addition to plenty of sweet cassis fruit, medium body, noticeably high tannin, and gorgeous purity as well as symmetry. It will be built along the lines of the 1996 rather than the 2000 or 1999.

This family-run estate continues to go from strength to strength, with the father and son (Gerard and Jean-Louis) team pushing all the right buttons to achieve success at all quality levels.

A brute right now, with a wall of bacony, coffee-tinged toast separating you from the core of blackberry and raspberry fruit. Great richness and texture here, with notes of tar, minerals, saddle leather and cocoa rippling through the finish. Mouthwatering acidity balances it all.

Chave (Jean-Louis)
Jean Louis Chave's red wine is made of 10 hectares of vineyards including a parcel of very old vines, Les Roucoules, another parcel of 80-year-old vines, The Bessards, relatively young vines of the Hermit, extremely old vines in Péléat and Beaumes, and 50-year-old vines in Méal. Each of these parcels produces a wine with slightly different aromas, textures and tastes, but the "sum of parts" is much more interesting than the wines from individual parcels. The exception could be the Bessards which, in the best years, a part is made into the very rare cuvée called Cathelin. Chave's Hermitage Rouge becomes dazzling after several years of cellaring. Rich and concentrated, wonderfully complex and elegant, it develops a wide range of flavors from the smoky cassis, through notes of plum, leather, toast and spice. Chave's Hermitage Blanc has aromas of honey and creamy hazelnut, peach and apricot and a rare smoothness. It has the potential to age for several decades. These Hermitages are distinguished far above all others by their freshness, their balance, finesse, and their aging potential.
