Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Saint Joseph Blanc Circa 2016
A longtime favorite of ours, Circa is made from old-vine Roussane and aged for 14 months in barrique. This is the only white made by Jean-Louis that comes from granitic soil. First produced in 2009 after the purchase of a historic St. Joseph domaine. Chave is a legend in the Northern Rhone (his family has been growing grapes since 1481!) and this is one of the best values in his lineup.
