About the wine 

Jean-Louis Chave makes these négociant wines to showcase what he believes to be the potential appellations with which he works. The Côtes du Rhône ‘Mon Coeur’ is a blend of four distinct terroir located in and around Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Not a typical Cotes du Rhone, this wine drinks more like a baby Chateauneuf; perfectly ripe and very aromatic (Herbs de Provence, olives, lavender), this wine makes for a great introduction to the Rhone.
