2003 Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle

Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Offering up layers of black raspberry, powdered rock, chocolate, roasted meats and graphite, it flows onto the palate with full-bodied richness, solid mid-palate depth and masses of fine tannin that are sweet and polished.

Winemaker's Notes

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006! "The finest example of this cuvee since 1990..."-Wine Advocate "Deceptively graceful at first, with a Burgundian-like perfume, this quickly delivers a torrent of fruit--blackberry, boysenberry and black currant--that cascades over itself, pushed from behind by flavors of mocha, mineral, tar and violets. Long, sweet and pure through a densely structured finish. Best from 2008 through 2030."-Wine Spectator
