Category Red Wine
Region France, Rhone, St-Joseph
Brand Jean-Louis Chave
The vineyards used for Offerus are located in two distinct St. Joseph areas. The communities of Mauves, Tournon, and St. Jean de Muzols yield over 80% of the blend and are owned by Jean-Louis. These southern vineyard sites express tightly wound tannins, spice, and power. They add structure and depth to complete the harmony of Offerus. The remaining vineyards are located in more northerly communities around Serrières, and even these are farmed mainly by Jean-Louis, though he doesn't own the vineyards. This soil produces wines which are more elegant with incredible purity, definition, and focus.

Intense, with a racy graphite edge driving the core of crushed plum and cherry fruit along. Dried anise, fruitcake and black tea notes run along the edges, adding range and texture. Drink now through 2026. 1,000 cases made.
