2017 Hermitage, 'La Chapelle', Paul Jaboulet Aîné

75-80% comes from 7 hectares of Le Méal and 2.5 hectares of Bessards, the former for flesh, the latter for structure. Inky and deep, with dark berries, tapenade and almost a resinous character, as well as sea spray and unfurling notes of graphite and leather. Ripe, dark plums. There's flesh here, but also such intensity, and the finish is clean, long, and focussed. Such a sense of latent, benevolent power. Outstanding.
