    "noble, complex white wine displaying notes of crushed rocks, flowers, quince, white currants, and white peaches. Very full-bodied with superb acidity and freshness, this is a stunning effort." Robert Parker (04/2009)

    Cuvée presentation

    In the hills of Hermitage, La Chapelle is the name to be reckoned with, and the wine from this parcel is legendary – it is among the most sought-after in the world, especially the 1961 vintage, which has been ranked one of the 12 iconic wines of the twentieth century. The white Hermitage La Chapelle is produced from fifty-year-old vineyards on the Rocoules terroir. The nose is complex, with fruity, mineral notes, developing hints of honey and candied fruit. With its remarkable balance between vivacity and roundness, it has exceptional length in the mouth. It offers excellent potential for keeping.

    Information about domain Paul Jaboulet Aîné

    Antoine Jaboulet set up his winemaking business Tain-l'Hermitage in 1834. He was succeeded by his sons, Paul and Henri who in turn passed the baton to Paul's son Louis. Next came Louis's son Gérard and then, in 1997, Gérard's cousin, Michel Jaboulet. He ran the domain until 2006 when it was bought by the Frey Group which also owns vineyards in Champagne and Bordeaux (Château la Lagune). Today, oenologist Caroline Frey runs the property which has worked steadily to achieve an excellent standard. In 2013, Maison Jaboulet officially converted its vineyards to organic and in 2015 it received “High Environmental Value” certification. Beyond these accreditations though, the domain's goal of bringing out the best in each majestic Rhône terroir remains unchanged. It achieves this goal by preserving the quality of the fruit, through meticulous vinification, and an attentive élevage.
