This has tightened up nicely, with damson plum, cherry pit and cassis notes now showing a taut feel, while anise, pain d'épices and charcoal notes take the lead. Solid, grippy finish is showing its muscle now, but the back-end finesse and length lurks in reserve. Should stretch out wonderfully in the cellar and may surprise with its longevity

The spectacular 2007 Hermitage boasts a dense purple color along with notes of creme de cassis, loamy soil, crushed rocks and acacia flowers, a rare opulence and a full-bodied style. Reminiscent of the 1991 Hermitage (a great vintage for Chave as well as most top producers in Hermitage), it should drink well for 20-25 years.
