Prestigious Domaine Jean-Louis Chave in Rhone has been passed from father to son since 1481. Mon Coeur, served at many 4-star restaurants in NY, is a blend of four distinct terroirs around Chateauneuf-du Pape. To ensure quality, Jean-Louis works with growers who share his perspective on organic farming and the preservation of terroir. For Mon Coeur, wines are vinified at their respective domains. Rich and concentrated, with a sturdy structure and a bunch of fruit. This is a wine that continuously improves with aging. A real bargain for the quality.
Food Pairing: Steak with herbs, hearty dishes, red/brown sauces.
