Winemakers Note

La Chapelle, a legendary wine Since 1919, on these steep, stony hillsides where only the hand of man can intervene, the Jaboulet family and then the Frey family have succeeded one another in cultivating the vines of this now legendary cuvée, La Chapelle Hermitage. A unique terroir named "Hermitage Hill" Taking advantage of a rock fault, the force of the Rhône River isolated this unique granite hill from the Massif Central, exiling it to the alpine side… Over thousands of years, time worked its magic. The Alpine uplift, the river’s course, glaciers, and winds enriched the depths of the hill with an exceptional diversity of soils. Derived from the most rocky parcels of Méal, Bessards, Rocoules, and Greffieux (with vines ranging from 40 to 100 years old), the perfect balance and depth of La Chapelle can only be found in the final blend of origins, thus revealing the wine’s own genius. Each terroir brings its aromatic characteristics, as well as the elegance of the tannin structure, which give this wine an exceptional aging potential.

With a cold, dry winter, ideal for the vines to rest, and a relatively wet, mild spring, the conditions were perfect for good bud-break and rapid growth of the young shoots. During the summer, drought alternated with milder periods and cool nights in August. These conditions favoured optimal ripening, silky tannins and a well-structured balance, with perfectly healthy grapes. Tasting notes he nose is salivating and deep, with subtle notes of oriental spices, black truffle, blackberry, cedar and sultana. The well-supported tannins give way to an intense velvetiness that lingers sensually. The structure strikes a balance between dense, powerful substance and a diversity of mature aromas.
