Fresh and complex, a great Hermitage wine

The estate

The iconic name of the great wines of the Northern Rhône Valley, the Paul Jaboulet-Aîné estate was founded in 1834 in Tain L'Hermitage. Renowned wine-grower and winemaker Caroline Frey runs this illustrious estate, owned by the Frey family since 2006. The Paul Jaboulet Aîné estate watches over a vineyard of 125 hectares, spread over exceptional appellations such as Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Muscat of Beaumes-de-Venise.

The vineyard

The knight Gaspard de Sterimberg, wounded during the Albigensian crusade, asked Queen Blanche of Castille for permission to settle on a hillside in 1224, where he founded his hermitage.

The wine

This Hermitage wine is the result of a rigorous selection of plots of land. It stems from old vines that are between 40 and 95 years old. Trained on stakes and planted on a mosaic of terroirs, these vines contribute to the signature style of this exceptional wine.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted by plot. Vinification along with gentle extractions. The wine is aged in French oak barrels.

The blend

100% Syrah.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Sourced from the granitic western portion of the appellation, the 2016 Hermitage La Chapelle features mouthwatering aromas of black olives and charred beef. It's full-bodied and creamy-velvety in texture, incredibly lush without being overtly fruity. In fact, it's largely savory, with elegant shadings of leather and spice on the long, silky finish. Yet despite being delicious now, this still has the granite backbone to age through 2040.
