Domaine Jean-Louis Chave is the embodiment of tradition. Arguably one of France’s finest estates, this family-owned producer hangs its hat on the continuity and beliefs of successive generations – in an open-minded, pragmatic way. Jean-Louis is on a crusade to make St. Joseph from the original sites of that appellation, and the family has about five hectares of vineyards spread across four communes. The oldest vines are on the Touron hillside.
