Description Sub Region Producer Notes
This dark, inky, almost opaque ‘09 Hermitage La Chapelle oozes across the palate with notes of brambly dark fruit, au jus, exotic spices, smoke, umami and pencil lead. Silky, viscous, rich and opulent in the mouth, this La Chapelle nonetheless has outstanding structure, freshness and balance--simply put, it’s an exquisite Hermitage and it shows that winemaker-owner Caroline Frey is at the top of her game. Deriving primarily from Le Meal and Les Bessards vineyards, with a touch of Les Roucoules fruit, the 2009 vintage clearly makes evident that Jaboulet is back on track with some dramatic changes; selections are stringent and yields have been significantly reduced from their typical 8,000-10,000 case production to a mere 2,000 in 2009. The results are more concentration, purer fruit and more structure--in fact, this may be the greatest La Chapelle since 1978.
