Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Saint-Joseph 2006

89+ points

Saint-Joseph, Northern Rhone. 13.5%

Benchmark wine for all Saint-Josephs. Perfect modern winemaking, fresh ripe fruit, restrained oak makes the young wine more approachable than expected. This is no 2003, by a long shot thankfully. Nor is it as ripe as 2005 but not far off.

Drink 2013 onwards.
