Domaine Jean-Louis Chave 2006 Hermitage Blanc

    Having cultivated its vineyards in the Rhône Valley for well over 500 years, the Chave family has amassed sizable holdings in Hermitage, where the oldest vines yield small quantities of superb fruit that give the finished wines their complexity. The Hermitage reds are rich and saturated, and the whites are invariably concentrated and lush. The Domaine Jean-Louis Chave 2006 Hermitage Blanc (available through Langdon Shiverick Imports, 213.483.5900; $200) is redolent of jasmine and honeycomb, while every satiny sip plunges the palate into delicious depths of candied orange and peach. Earthy granite minerality serves as a counterpoint to the wine’s ripe extravagance.
