As part of our 5th Annual Syrah Week (October 18 - 29), we are all things Syrah/Shiraz. We are delighted to present many of the wines of Jean-Louis Chave. Act fast, this class will sell out!
Few who cherish the power and perfume of classically made Hermitage would argue that the greatest red and white examples emerge from the Chave family cellars. The current generation in charge, Jean-Louis (16th generation!), uses his knowledge, experience and spread of lieux-dits to craft wines that combine all the power, longevity, nuance and refinement that the Hermitage hill is capable of.
Liz Willette Danneels developed a love of wine while working for the luxury travel company, Butterfield & Robinson. She started guiding trips in Italy, but it was while stationed at their office in Beaune, France, that she lived with Erin Cannon (now Chave), who was running Kermit Lynch’s French office. Inevitably, Liz was bitten by the wine bug living in Burgundy. Eventually, though, Italy called her back, and Liz taught herself about wine mainly by buying the best bottles she could afford, studying them, educating her clients about them, and, naturally, drinking them.
