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. This legendary cru carries the richness of its different exceptional terroirs through its complexity.
This elegant purple-tinted opaque red 2010 Paul Jaboulet-Aîné Hermitage La Chapelle, gives off intense aromas of blackberry, liquorice camphor with a subtle mineral hint. The palate is vigorous and floral, with a fine smoke and a vibrant finish on spices and red berry notes. The 2010 vintage is an equivalent of the superb 2009 vintage.
