JL Chave Selections

Chave has his family domaine but also a negociant operation called Chave Selections that produces wines that are generally intended for drinking young. For a long time we have always marveled at the exceptional values coming out of that project. This is is not a normal negociant churning out factory-made wines. Chave grows much of the fruit himself, or sources it from small-holding family friends who are themselves traditional farmers from the region. The wine-making takes place at the Domaine and is given as much attention by JL Chave as his top wine. That’s why these values are so good!
