One of the northern Rhône’s most exciting young winemakers, the talented Yann Chave joined his father Bernard at the family winery in 1996 and swiftly began to move away from supplying the local co-operative and into the production of his own wine.
Today the domaine is fully certified organic across its 20 hectares which includes Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage with an average vine age of 30 years for the Hermitage and 25 years for the Crozes. Yann makes beautifully crafted, concentrated yet supple expressions of syrah.
In 2017, Yann picked early, in the second week of September, and has crafted a magnificent range of concentrated yet supple examples of the syrah grape.

"Produced from 25 year old vines in the villages of La Roche de Glun, Mercurol and Pont de l’Isère. The bunches are 100% destemmed, fermented and macerated for three weeks and aged in stainless steel vats which enhances the ripe fruit and freshness on the palate. Ruby red, with blackberry and cherry on the nose, this is a beautiful, vividly fruity wine. Generous and velvety with supple, ripe tannins and a long finish. Drink 2020-2024.  "
