JL CHAVE SÉLECTION CROZES-HERMITAGE SILÈNE 2015 is available to buy in increments of 1
The vineyards for Silène are hillside vineyards located in Larnage and Gervans. The granite soil produces a wine with more backbone and structure. The idea behind this Crozes is to balance the fruit of Syrah without compromising the tightness given by the granite. 50% of the Crozes comes from a parcel of young vines planted in 2003 and owned by Domaine Jean Louis Chave. The parcel sits on a beautiful terroir on the rear east-facing flank of the Hermitage hill.

The grapes are vinified at the Domaine using indigenous yeasts and aged for 18 months in 600 liter oak casks. The result is a wine of balance and pleasure and a great introduction to Crozes.
90/100 Wine Spectator, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​There's a lovely fleshy edge to the core of crushed plum and blackberry preserve flavours in this red, while flecks of singed bay leaf and dried lavender chime in. A light tug of earth through the finish adds range and texture. Drink now through 2019. 800 cases made."
