Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Petite Chapelle 2010

Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Petite Chapelle 2010

Sku: P62756

The nose is very pretty, with soft blue fruit, picking up some black pepper with air. The soft nose hides a powerhouse. Loads of tannic grip up front. Behind that is chewy black plum, adding black pepper & black olive as you sip. - PB, 3/16/2016

Rather stolid for Hermitage, with a wall of roasted cedar in front of cassis, blackberry paste and iron notes. Ample cocoa flavors course through the finish, with a slightly austere structure. Shows depth, but lacks the drive and range of the best from the appellation. Best from 2014 through 2024. 75 cases imported. -JM

The 2010 Hermitage La Petite Chapelle is a better wine than nearly every Hermitage La Chapelle made under the final years of the Jaboulet family’s ownership (for example, 1993-2005). The 2010 was aged in barrel and represents one-third of the Hermitage crop (another one-third was eliminated and the final one-third went into La Chapelle). Its deep purple color is followed by notes of camphor, tar, pepper, beef blood, black currant jam and hints of new saddle leather as well as earth. This supple, rich, full, authoritative beauty should drink well for 15-20 years.
