92/100

Paul Jaboulet Ainé Hermitage La Chapelle 1996


Wet clay, earthy tobacco and darjeeling tea leaves, licorice, black garlic, balsamic, black olive in brine, savoury peppercorn leather ceps mushrooms and forest floor


Med body High acidity Med firm tannins Med plus alcohol Med plus intensity Med plus finish


The wine is on the late part of the peak and is not showing any primary fruits, however the complexity is excellent. Structure, including tannins is still great making this wine outstanding but probably excellent 5 years ago
