2012 Crozes Hermitage Le Rouvre Yann Chave

Average critic rating : 92.0 points



A smaller production release that’s aged 12 months in once-used demi-muid, the 2012 Crozes Hermitage le Rouvre is a smoking, full-bodied effort that has stunning purity of fruit, a stacked mid-palate and a layered, seamless texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. Giving up plenty of licorice, graphite, crushed rock and cassis and blackcurrant-like fruit, it should drink nicely through 2022.||I continue to love these wines from Yann Chave. Owning a small four acres in Hermitage (all in Beaume and Peleat) and just over 37 acres in Crozes Hermitage, most around the village of Mercurol, he makes a rock-solid white and two reds from Crozes Hermitage (the le Rouvre being the top cuvee) and a small amount of Hermitage. They're all loaded with character and highly recommended. eRobertParker.com.December, 2014
