"Compared to the La Maison Bleu, the 2019 Hermitage La Chapelle is more closed, tight, and primary, with a focused, full-bodied style that carries impressive black and blue fruits, graphite, bloody meat, and ample minerality. Structured and tannic, yet wonderfully concentrated and pure, it's not for those seeking instant gratification, but its another stunning Hermitage in the making." 96-98+ points, Jeb Dunnuck
Paul Jaboulet Ainé is a legendary Northern Rhône producer that has been lifted back to its former glory - and then some - by its new owner, Bordelaise Caroline Frey of Château La Lagune. This is an estate that has not put a foot wrong since the change of ownership in 2006, and a source of both some of the very finest reds in the world, and some of the best value in the region.
