Northern Rhône

$69.00 per Bottle


11 Bottles




"Final blend in tank, immediately prior to bottling. This has fresh and exotic red fruit with plenty of spice and tarry nuances, plenty of fragrance and dry stony aromas, too. Elegant and plush with complex texture. The tannins are gently grippy. Finishes with chocolate and spice. Best from 2025." JamesSuckling.com,

"Just a wonderfully fun, joyous expression of the appellation, Chave's 2017 Saint Joseph was set to be bottled the day after my visit. It blends lots from Chalaix, Dardouille, Les Oliviers, Bachasson, and Le Clos Florentin into a medium to full-bodied wine loaded with cherries and delicate herbal nuances. Silky and crisp on the finish, it can be enjoyed now and anytime over the next 5-6 years." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Meaty, minty, fragrant and layered. Such tenderness! Dry, finely hewn tannins. Long finish. Far from reaching its peak." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
