La Chapelle cuvee gets its name from the small Saint Christophe chapel that overlooks the terraced vineyard of domain Paul Jaboulet-Aîné. It comes from old vines of Syrah, planted on rich and varied soils of Hermitage appellation. It is a complex wine that bears the richness of its different exceptional terroirs. The 2001 La Chapelle of Paul Jaboulet Aîné displays a red-tinted dark colour with deep dark glints. The nose is expressive and distinguished; it gives off ripped fruit, liquorice and empyrameutic notes. On the palate, the attack is powerful and reveals good breadth, and still firm tannins. The finish, long and harmonious, offers a sweet full-bodied sensation.
