1999 Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle
One of the finest red wines of France. When young the color is deep purple, like black cherries, with aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry. It is a full wine with delicate tannins, 100% destemmed, complex. With age this rich nectar takes on scents of leather, truffles, undergrowth and leaf-mold. The Syrah vines, with an average age of 35 years, have an exceptional position on the hill, facing the south. Not a single ray of sunshine misses this slope.
