Paul Jaboulet-Aîné : La Chapelle 2017

A fine and aromatically rich Hermitage wine

The estate

Paul Jaboulet-Aîné, the infamous reference among Northern Rhône Valley wines, was founded in 1834 in Tain L'Hermitage. The renowned oenologist and winemaker, Caroline Frey, has been running this illustrious house, owned by the Frey family, since 2006. Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné watches over 125 hectares of vines that spread over exceptional appellations such as Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.

The vineyards of Hermitage and Crozes Hermitage have been managed using biodynamic practices since 2017.

The vineyard

The knight Gaspard de Sterimberg, wounded during the Albigensian crusade, asked Queen Blanche of Castile for permission to settle on a hillside in 1224, on which he founded his hermitage.

This Hermitage wine is made from a rigorous selection of the most beautiful plots located in the west of the appellation. It is made from old vines aged between 40 and 95 years old, trained on stakes and planted on a mosaic of terroirs that contribute to the signature style of this exceptional wine.

The blend

Paul Jaboulet-Aîné's La Chapelle 2017 is a 100% Syrah.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
