Hermitage, La Chapelle, Paul Jaboulet Aîné 2012


ABV 14.5%

The complex nose reveals this Syrah’s finesse, with flavours of black fruits, sweet spices and woody notes. Full and generous, with silky tannins and a very long finish. 97/100 The Wine Advocate

The first year where winemaker Caroline Frey really feels her organic farming drive paid off, the 2012 Hermitage la Chapelle is a gorgeous effort that shows the purity and texture of the vintage, as well as the class of the le Meal lieu-dit. Offering up classic black raspberry and sweet dark fruit, Asian spice, toasted bread, licorice and savory herbs, this beauty is full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and has enough tannic grip to demand 4-5 years of bottle age. It will have 3+ decades of longevity.
