Hermitage, Domaine Yann Chave Magnum 2015
From two sites: Beaume and Péléat, on a loess dominated soil, particularly well exposed to the south-west. Aged in 100% new small French oak barrels from Taransaud and Seguin-Moreau. Superb, loaded with deep, powerful black fruits. Complex and spicy with swathes of rich, ripe tannins and a long concentrated finish. A brilliant wine which will repay cellaring.
