Domaine JL Chave Scores Big with Jeb Dunnuck

In the first Rhône regional report for JebDunnuck.com, Domaine JL Chave has received a pair of perfect scores! Both the 2015 Hermitage Blanc and the 2010 Hermitage Rouge "Cuvée Cathelin" have gotten this honor and we couldn't be more proud of this first-class estate.


The Chave family is based in a small village on the northern right bank of the Rhone. There have been Chaves growing vines on the famous Hermitage hill since 1481. Gerard Chave took over from his father in 1970 and rapidly achieved megastar status due to the extraordinary quality of his wines and has since passed on the winemaking responsibilities to his son Jean-Louis. The Chave’s methods for all their winemaking are traditional farming, super low yields, full ripeness, and minimal manipulation. Their unmatched meticulousness continues through five centuries to render venerable expressions of the purest of Rhône terroir.
