Yann Chave owns 1.15 hectares on the hill of Hermitage in two lieux-dits (Beaume and Peleat), both south-west facing in the central part of the appellation. This wine is aged in 100% new, 650 litre demi-muids principally from Taransaud. Destemmed 100%, this is a complex and imposing wine.

Domaine Yann Chave

Yann Chave joined his father Bernard at the family winery in 1996 and quickly set about expanding and improving the estate. Today, the domaine extends over 20 hectares, including 1.15 hectares on the hill of Hermitage itself, and is certified organic in its entirety. Vinification is meticulous. The fruit is 100% destemmed and then fermented and macerated for 20-25 days in stainless steel vats, followed by ageing for 9-12 months in either stainless steel or 650 litre oak casks. Yann produces superb, rich, characterful wines, amongst the very best of the region.
