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. Chave wines are a worldwide benchmark for Syrah worldwide. ‘Offerus’ shows smoky notes of ripe dark fruit and violets, with spice, meat, and earth undertones.


Simon Field MW (2016 Vintage)
"St Joseph is very close to Jean-Louis’ heart; the Syrah from these south-east-facing granitic hills is a grape “qui Pinote”, by which he means a grape which assumes the aromatic complexity and silky texture of a fine Burgundy. The Offerus is made from vines in Mauves and St-Jean-de Muzols. Its fruit not entirely de-stemmed, which lends extra grip to the notes of crushed raspberry, cassis and tapenade. Drink 2019-2024."


Reviews for the 2015 vintage below…


93/100 Wine Spectator (2015 Vintage)
"Intense, with a racy graphite edge driving the core of crushed plum and cherry fruit along. Dried anise, fruitcake and black tea notes run along the edges, adding range and texture."


92/100 Vinous (2015 Vintage)
"Opaque ruby. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit, floral pastille, olive and smoky mineral character on the nose. Sweet, spicy and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy blueberry and cherry cola flavours underscored by a peppery quality that adds back-end spiciness and cut. Youthfully firm tannins add shape to the finish, which hangs on with impressive, dark-berry-driven tenacity."


92/100 James Suckling (2015 Vintage)
"Primarily estate fruit with outside components. This has an array of dark cherries and spiced dark plums, as well as a fresh, vibrant and plush core wrapped in crisp yet silky tannins. Drink or hold."
