50% Syrah & 50% Grenache
Long considered the king of Hermitage, Jean Louis Chave also operates Jean-Louis Chave Selections, his négociant line which sources grapes from various areas in the Rhone. Mon Coeur Cotes du Rhone is a blend of excellent plots in Vinsobres, Visan, Buisson, and Estargues. As with all things Chave, quality is eminent even at the entry level.

A deliciously ripe Syrah / Grenache blend with a wonderful core of dark, berry fruit supported by a framework of ripe tannin with cooling, grantic notes and a sleek, sophisticated texture. It is readily approachable from release.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)​
"Jean-Louis makes these négociant wines to showcase what he believes to be the potential appellations with which he works. The Côtes du Rhône ‘Mon Coeur’ is a blend of four distinct terroir located in and around Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Though the blend varies year to year, it is roughly 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache. Vine age is between 20-60 years."
90/100 Wine Spectator, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​This unfurls a pure beam of crushed plum and black cherry fruit, inlaid gently with singed bay leaf, pepper and anise notes. A light smoky edge runs through the finish. Drink now."
Simon Field MW (2015 Vintage)
"The idea of a Côtes du Rhône from Monsieur Chave was always fascinating; I was intrigued to know where he would source his fruit for such a project. Vinsobres, with its altitude, its high proportion of Syrah and its relatively northern location, provides a significant minority and the other key communes are Cairanne, Séguret and Valréas, all lauded and all tending to eschew more indulgent styles of Grenache. Elegant and aromatic, the outstanding 2015 has a dense textured palate, ripe and fruit-forward and with a pleasing lick of pepper at the finish. Drink now to 2021."
