    The 2009 Paul Jaboulet-Aîné Hermitage La Chapelle still exhibits a purple-tinted bright red colour. It gives off cassis, liquorice, Morello cherry aromas, with subtle notes of spring flowers. This wine has a solid and sensational concentration, yet reveals a surprising freshness on the palate. The finish is vigorous on spicy and mineral notes. La Chapelle gets its name from the small Saint Christophe chapel that overlooks the terraced vineyard of domaine Paul Jaboulet-Aîné. It comes from old vines of Syrah, planted on rich and varied soils of Hermitage appellation. This legendary cru carries the richness of its different exceptional terroirs through its complexity.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    It will be thrilling to follow the 2009 and 2010 la Chapelles over the coming 40-50 years. Much more sexy, voluptuous and layered than the 2010, the 2009 Hermitage la Chapelle offers sensational levels of extract and concentration to go with notes of cassis, black raspberries, coffee bean, toasted bread and sweet spice. Beautifully pure, layered, and yet massively endowed, with sweet tannin, it will be drinkable at an earlier age than the 2010, but I suspect will be just as long lived. It's a true tour de force in Hermitage!
