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.
