Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2018

Intense and bright with a slight purple hue. A complex, distinctive nose in which the finesse of the Syrah is clearly recognizable with notes of black berries, liquorice, pepper and a hint of wood. Full and generous taste with silky tannins and a long finish.

100 Points, Wine Spectator "Jaboulet's 2018 Hermitage La Chapelle features scents of crushed stone, violets and cassis. It's a classic trio, backed by a wine that's full-bodied, rich and powerful yet also airy, somehow carrying intense plum and black olive flavors without any sense of heaviness or excess weight. Then the wine finishes long and softly dusty, with tannins that accentuate its savory character, picking up delicious hints of licorice at the very end. The proportion of new oak has been trimmed back to a very reasonable 20% and is hardly noticeable in the wine. Drink 2023 - 2045."
