From the Critics:
- "A fantastic Côtes du Rhône that‟s a blend of Grenache and Syrah from vineyards located in Visan, Vinsobres, and Estézargues (all southern Rhône communes), the 2010 J.L. Chave Sélection Côtes du Rhône Mon Coeur delivers a classic array of bright black cherry, black currant, violets, garrigue, and licorice on the nose. Beautifully intense and rich aromatically, it doesn‟t lose a beat on the palate and is medium to full-bodied and loaded with fruit, showcasing notable purity, a voluptuous texture, and big, mouth coating tannin that emerges on the finish. It needs an hour of air to shine currently, and will be even better in a year or two. I would consume bottles over the coming 5-8 years, yet a decade of prime drinking isn‟t out of the question here." -
- "The star of this line-up in terms of value is the 2010 Cotes du Rhone Mon Coeur, a blend of Syrah and Grenache primarily from the southern Rhone (i.e., Vinsobres, Rasteau and Cairanne). This dense ruby/purple-colored, rich 2010 reveals kirsch and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of spice box, pepper and meat. Luscious and round, it is ideal for drinking over the next 5-6 years." -
