Jeb Dunnuck Reviews Jean-Louis Chave

Jeb Dunnuck has released scores for several recent vintages of Northern Rhône wines, including the domaine lineup from Jean-Louis Chave. With multiple perfect scores, this winery continues to go from strength to strength. As Dunnuck himself says, "life is too short not to drink as much
Chave as you can!"


The Chave family is based in a small village on the northern right bank of the Rhône. 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. Their unmatched meticulousness continues through five centuries to render venerable expressions of the purest of Rhône terroir.
