Hermitage, La Chapelle Rouge 2011

Paul Jaboulet Aine

Case Format: 6x75cl

Paul Jaboulet Aine is one of the most iconic names in the world of wine. La Chapelle is famed as being one of the finest red wines in the market. Grown on the hillside of Hermitage, La Chapelle is named after a tiny chapel built by the knight Gaspard de Stérimberg in 1235 and the vines he planted there after his return from the Crusades. Founded in 1834 by Antoine Jaboulet (Paul was one of his sons), it was Paul’s son, Louis, and grandson, Gérard, who can be heralded among the great ambassadors for the both the region and the négociant. In 2006, the Freys took over Paul Jaboulet Aine. Their head winemaker, Caroline Frey, shifted the estate towards sustainable farming, which saw them achieve organic status in 2016. Hermitage La Chapelle rouge comprises 100% Syrah, and is full bodied with both rounded tannins and an almost savoury flavour.



Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The 2011 Hermitage La Chapelle represents about one-third of the production. It could turn out to be a modern day replay of the 1991. Aged in small oak (around one-third to one-half new), this wine comes from the estate’s extensive holdings in Le Meal as well as smaller holdings in Les Bessards and Les Rocoules. It boasts a dense purple color along with a big, sweet nose of graphite, licorice, forest floor, pepper, blackberries and hints of smoked duck and charcuterie. Pure and full-bodied with supple tannins and a more evolved, precocious style than the blockbuster 2010, the 2011 should drink well in 4-5 years and last for 20-25.

Beef juice, black cherry, finely chewy tannins, moderate acid, touches of animal aromas. Quite mild-mannered, not sure it has all the expected grandness of Hermitage. (RH)
