Paul Jaboulet Ainé, Hermitage La Chapelle, 2011
09 December 2016

Jaboulet’s Hermitage La Chapelle is one of the most iconic wines from the Rhone valley. The 61 and78 are the stuff of legends. To use a rather blunt footballing analogy, Jaboulet was the Nottingham Forest of the wine world - lifting European Championships and basking in their considerable glory. And just like this venerable footballing giant, it ignominiously fell off its perch. However, our metaphor ends here. Whilst the Tricky Trees have yet to rediscover their form; La Chapelle certainly has. In another tale that echoes many a premiership football clubs, wealthy new owners have breathed new life (and cash) into this estate. The Freys also have wine interests in Champagne and the Medoc; and since their arrival in 2006, things have looked up! We are delighted to offer some ex Chateau stocks of the splendid 2011 vintage.

‘A gorgeous intensity of plum, spice and grilled meat on the nose. Cloves and hints of dried spices. This is a big, structured La Chappelle. Full and powerful with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A bit austere and muscular but gorgeous. Tar, spice, dried meat and asphalt. Needs to be aged for at least another five or six years. This is another 1991 in the making. 97/100’. - James Suckling
