Hermitage La Chapelle 2015 (Double Magnum)Jaboulet Aine
€ 966,79 (in Vat)
The 2015 Hermitage La Chapelle is one of the estate?s finest recent efforts. It?s packed with firm tannins and will need to be lost in the cellar for a decade, but it will reward those with patience. Richly concentrated and full-bodied, it hits all the expected notes?cassis, black olive, smoke, crushed stone, pencil shavings and espresso?then finishes long, with an aristocratic sense of reserve and austerity. Winemaker Jacques Devernois compares it to a woman?s black dress, meaning it speaks of elegance and class.

JS A majestic and brooding nose with dark stone fruits, wet black stones, pepper and brown spices as well as some dark chocolate and meaty notes, and fresh truffle-like earthiness, too. The palate draws deep and even with effortless power. Seamless. Extremely focused and long fine tannins. Hints of high cocoa chocolate. The acidity is stunning. This is flawless Hermitage.?
