Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2017

Intense and bright. Highly complex, distinguished nose, revealing the Syrah’s great finesse. Dark fruits, sweet spices, silky and long. Full, generous and mineral.

98 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The 2017 Hermitage La Chapelle comes from the firm's vineyards on the western half of the Hermitage slope, primarily Le Méal, but with substantial contributions from Les Rocoules and Les Bessards. Classic notes of cassis, black olives, mocha and roasted meat are joined by hints of baking spices in a wine that's full-bodied, deep, dense and rich, with a velvety texture and a lingering finish. It's lower in alcohol than the 2018, less voluptuous and maybe just a step behind that monumental wine, but it's still a serious collectible with three decades of evolution ahead of it. Drink date 2022 - 2045"
