Jaboulet ‘La Chapelle’ Hermitage 2010

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 03-Jan-2015
Impenetrable black-red colour with youthful purple hues. The bouquet is full and voluminous with an array of aromatics, ranging from ripe black berried fruits, savoury earth and minerals, ethereal game-like, funky elements, violet and dark red florals and spices, all unfolding in layers with a very complex interaction of intricate detail. Fullish bodied, the concentration of ripe black fruits is the feature. The palate unfolds a myriad of complexing flavours, with pepper, spices, earth and game, with floral beauty. The fruit is rich and sweet, and framed by powerful extract and structure that fills the mouth with flavour and textures. There is wonderful energy and drive. A truly multidimensional wine with richness, power, structure and beauty. 15-20 years of development easily. 100% Syrah, mainly from ‘Le Meal’, from vines 40 y.o. on average, destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12-18 months in 20% new barriques. 20.0/20 Nov 2014 RRP $400.00
