DESCRIPTION:

J.L. Chave is best known for its prestigious wines from the hill of Hermitage, but the negociant arm of the family business makes excellent wines as well. Mon Coeur is the sole Cotes du Rhône wine of the domaine, made from a fairly equal blend of grenache and syrah, with a small amount of mourvedre and cinsault. It is a ripe, full-bodied red wine with elegant tannins, and shows notes of red and black fruit with a touch of peppery spice.
