Description

The finesse and freshness of a Rhône Valley red wine

The estate

Domaine Yann Chave is the reflection of a family’s passion for the vine. Founded in the early 1970s by his parents, the eponymous estate initially covered 4 hectares, one of which was devoted to vines and three to fruit growing. This dual cultivation, emblematic of the era, has been preserved while the estate has developed. In 1973, the Chave family began making their own wines, working with the Cave Coopérative de Tain until 1978. The following year, Nicole and Bernard Chave set up their own winery.

Passionate for and close to his vineyard, Yann set about restructuring the vines and adopting working methods that were more respectful of the soil. He later turned to organic farming, certifying the estate in 2007. Today, the estate covers 20 hectares in the heart of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation, part of which is on the prestigious Hermitage hill.

The vineyard

Situated in the heart of the Rhône Valley, the vineyard stretches out on a mosaic of terroirs. It draws its richness from the three strong identities of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation: La Roche-de-Glun, Mercurol and Pont-de-l'Isère. These soils, bathed in sunshine and tempered by the Mistral, provide the ideal context for Syrah to flourish.

Winemaking and ageing

Fermentation, lasting 3 to 4 weeks, is followed by ageing in vats for 10 months.

Characteristics and tasting tips for Tradition 2020 from Yann Chave

Tasting

Colour
The wine, a bright crimson colour, has ruby highlights.

Nose
Expressive and complex, the nose releases fragrances of black fruit like cherry and plum, and fine notes of black pepper.

Palate
The attack presents a great finesse and lovely freshness. The beautifully fruity framework also gives way to a remarkable finesse.

To serve

For the best tasting, this wine should be served at between 16 and 18°C.             

Food and wine pairing

This wine pairs perfectly with tuna tornedo flash-cooked on a plancha accompanied by a stir-fry of seasonal vegetables, or a barbecued duckling fillet with carrots.

Storage

Tradition 2020 from Yann Chave can be laid down until 2030.
