Hermitage La Chapelle 2014 Jaboulet Aine
€ 143,99 (incl. Vat)
While not at the level of the 2015, 2010 or 2009, the 2014 Hermitage La Chapelle is certainly a success and sports a deep ruby color as well as classic, medium to full-bodied notes of smoked meats, crushed violets, spice, black raspberries and currants. Elegant, seamless, finesse-driven and beautifully layered, with impeccable tannin quality,
JS A blend of Le Meal (structure) and Les Bessards (flesh), the dark granitic stony influence is striking with smoky, dark stony minerals and peppery nuances. The fruit is in the blackberry, raspberry and red plum spectrum. The palate has an impressive fluid core of supple dark and red plum fruits with an undercarriage of smooth, muscular tannins. Nice balance.
