2009 Hermitage La Chapelle, Paul Jaboulet Aîné

The 2009 La Chapelle has a soaring, complex, complete nose of blackberries, dark chocolate, white pepper, and still some floral character. The palate is silky and mouth-filling: there’s an astonishing concentration here, but it’s worn lightly. Already stunning, this is a wine that is sure to go for another half century or more. It’s a true legend: and at this price, it offers value for money.

2009 Hermitage La Chapelle, Paul Jaboulet Aîné
Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné

Jaboulet is one of the Rhône’s most famous names, and the house’s flagship wine, Hermitage La Chapelle, is an icon. Founded as a family concern in the early 19th century, it remained in family hands for nearly two hundred years, until it was sold to the Frey family, proprietors of Bordeaux Third Growth Château La Lagune and Champagne’s Billecart-Salmon. Caroline Frey now oversees the winemaking, and the estate has returned to the top table in Hermitage.
