Jean-Louis Chave in the News

Winemaker Jean-Louis Chave tends to be camera and interview-shy, so we are pleased that he's made a few media appearances recently, talking about his winery.

From the podcast I'll Drink to That:
"Jean-Louis Chave is the proprietor of Domaine Jean-Louis Chave and Jean-Louis Chave Selection, working within appellations of the Northern Rhône Valley of France. Also in this episode, Erin Scala outlines the hill of Hermitage."
And video from the Wine Spectator:
"Grapes from hillside vineyards can make great wines, but building and working these slopes is not an easy task. High above the Rhone River, Jean-Louis Chave showed his work-in-progress to James Molesworth."
And an interview with Richard Hemming, MW via
"As a naturally modest and thoughtful person, Chave would much rather let the terroir take the credit than let his own ego get in the way. Wines of this calibre do not make themselves, however, and I was able to glean a few insights into the man's philosophy as we tasted some of his wines over lunch."
