Deep and brooding nose. Dark earth, Concentrated chicken essence in a barnyard with truffle infused eggs and sweet juicy blackberries and currants. This has developed into a great wine! More nuanced , understated yet substantial.
On the nose, sweet red fruit, dry soil, light mustiness, floral notes, soy sauce and faint cinnamon. Background mint and eucalyptus on both the nose and palate. Palate has less complexity than the nose but sweet red fruit and savory mint are notable. 30 minute decant. Paired with adobo pork lettuce rolls. 90-91.

(Paul Jaboulet Aîné Hermitage La Chapelle) Bricked dark red violet color; tobacco, talc, bacon fat, light horseradish, licorice nose; mature, licorice, dried berry, garrigue, tart black cherry palate; long finish
(Paul Jaboulet Hermitage "La Chapelle") Tight, funky and unyielding at first but with 45 minutes this turned into a silky, sexy wine with an amazing pillowy mouthfeel and olive tapenade and dark berry fruit flavors and an outrageously long finish. Truly a great and overlooked La Chapelle.
