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.
The vineyards for Silène are hillside vineyards located in Larnage and Gervans. It is rare for Crozes to come from hillside granitic soil, as most of Crozes is situated on the alluvial valley floor. 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.


Reviews for the 2016 vintage below…


92/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright violet. Expressive, mineral-tinged cherry and blackberry scents, along with hints of smoky bacon, licorice and succulent flowers. Concentrated and energetic on the palate, offering juicy, spice-laced black and blue fruit flavours that put on weight and become sweeter with air. Closes very long and sweet, showing excellent clarity and cut on the minerally, youthfully tannic finish."
