    April 13, 2019 - Unbelievable nose. Dark berries, bacon, great acidity. Mushrooms, earth, great core of black fruit. Great now.

    April 12, 2019 - Aroma of sour currants and flowers. Tasted red currant, blood iron. Slightly dry. This gets much better after 1 hour of decanting - developed floral and cassis palate with slight tinge of honey. Enjoyable and easy drinking. This should get better with more time.

    February 10, 2019 - Very earrthy and funky at open, one full hour of decant turned that out and revealed a beautiful Rhone wine full of complexity and style

    November 22, 2018 - On first pop this displays a gorgeous nose of earthy truffle before transitioning to red currant, black olive, and white pepper. Earthy flavors on the palate are supported by soaring acidity and soft, resolving tannins. The 1998 Hermitage La Chapelle is special. Drink through 2025. (Cellar rerelease from winery)
