    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.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Following on the heels of the '03, the 2001 Hermitage la Chapelle failed to really impress. Savory, earthy and rustic, with notes of cured meats, herbs, tobacco, mint and olive, this medium-bodied, earthy and relatively mature effort should be drunk up over the coming 4-5 years.
