Tasting Notes:

Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage when young, should be decanted at least 2-3 hours, give or take, allowing the wines to soften and open their perfume. However, Jaboulet La Chapelle in its youth can easily use 3-5 hours of decanting. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Jaboulet Hermitage is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

  • Colour: So inky and unfathomably profound in shade, this wine may stain your stemware as well as your palate with its caliginous hue.
  • Nose: Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and intense, the has a lot of tannins, but the tannins are ripe, refined and round.
  • Finish: The wine fills your mouth and coats your palate with deep, ripe, dark berries. This should age and evolve for decades. This could be the best vintage for Jaboulet La Chapelle since it was purchased by the Frey family.

Description

Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2007

Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2007 has one of the longest histories of any winery or negotiates in the world. Originally founded in 1834 by Antoine Jaboulet in the Northern Rhone Valley, the company is currently owned by the Frey family who counts numerous wine properties in their holdings.

In Bordeaux, they own Chateau L. In the Rhone valley, they have holdings in Chateauneuf du Pape, Cornas, Crozes-Hermitage and Cotes du Rhone. They market red and white wines. Jaboulet acts as both a negociant, as well as a wine producer. Paul Jaboulet is clearly capable of producing some of the top wines on the world! The terroir is there. 1961 Jaboulet La Chapelle is one of the world’s greatest wine tasting experiences. It’s a legend among wine collectors. It’s been scored 100 Pts by Robert Parker. We scored the famous 1961 Jaboulet La Chapelle 100 Pts as well!

In fact, the 1978 and 1990 have also scored 100 Pts from us. All three vintages of Jaboulet La Chapelle hit the magic, triple-digit number from Robert Parker. However, the Domaine went through a weak period following the 1990 vintage. The quality of wines being produced dropped following the 1990 vintage. Who knows what caused it. It was probably the death of Gerard Jaboulet.

It as not until after the Frey family bought the Domaine that quality returned. 2003 was a rebirth vintage for La Chapelle. In late 2014, the Frey family continued adding to their holdings when they bought Chateau de Corton Andre in the Cote de Beaune area of Burgundy which included 7 hectares of vines. 2007 was strong and 2009 is sublime, however, 2010 Jaboulet La Chapelle is probably the best vintage of La Chapelle produced by the Frey family yet. But that could change with the 2015 vintage.

Paul Jaboulet is one of the largest landowners in Hermitage with almost 22 hectares vines planted to Syrah in Hermitage.
