Jaboulet Hermitage la Chapelle 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Hermitage La Chapelle is a noteworthy successor. Although not quite as succulent or concentrated as the 2009, it offers wonderfully crisp acids, a well-focused, delineated style, medium to full body, and abundant blackberry, cassis, camphor, licorice, subtle smoke and crushed rock-like characteristics. The wine’s minerality is more obvious as there is less fat and succulence compared to the 2009. This is another 30+ year wine that should develop an extraordinary set of aromatics with additional aging...92-95" WA 12/11 "Opaque purple. Heady, intensely perfumed aromas of candied blueberry, cherry and violet, with a wild array of spice and herb qualities adding complexity. Cassis, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors stain the palate, with a vibrant mineral nuance providing lift. Closes with superb energy and cut, leaving floral, spice and blue fruit notes behind...96-98" IWC 03/12

It should be fascinating to compare the potentially legendary 2010 Hermitage La Chapelle with the prodigious 2009 La Chapelle over the next 30-40 years. About 20% new oak was used, and, as were previous vintages, the 2010 was aged 15 months prior to bottling. This black/purple-colored beauty is revealing more weight and richness than it did last year from barrel, along with great precision, stunning minerality and enormous quantities of blackberry, cassis, beef blood and smoked game intertwined with hints of graphite and acacia flowers. With good acidity and richness as well as abundant, but ripe, well-integrated tannin, this great wine equals the titan produced in 2009. Forget it for 7-10 years and drink it over the following 30-50 years. - Robert Parker 96+ Points Inky, glass-staining ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes dark fruit liqueur, smoky Indian spices, potpourri and cracked pepper. Deep but lively, offering palate-coating blueberry and cherry-cola flavors and a sexy note of candied violet. This wine opens up dramatically with a little air and shows a very suave blend of power and finesse. An energizing mineral note comes on strong on the endless finish, which features sexy floral and spicecake nuances. - Stephen Tanzer 96 Points Cocoa, raspberry confiture, roasted plum, tobacco and loam notes are nicely layered, backed by an ample but caressing structure. The long, lingering, tobacco leaf-filled finish shows ample depth and an echo of pastis. Best from 2015 through 2030. 2,500 cases imported. –JM - Wine Spectator Magazine 94 Points

Opaque purple. Captivating aromas of boysenberry, dark cherry, pepper, spices, cocoa powder and smoky minerality. Then intense and penetrating in the mouth, with brilliantly fresh dark berry and kirsch flavors lifted by notes of cinnamon and star anise. Finishes pungent and impressively long, with a palate-saturating whiplash of dark berry and spice flavors. This wine calls for at least decade of aging. Only 900 bottles were slated to be sent to the American importer. Sleek and primal now, with a beam of glistening raspberry and red currant fruit running over well integrated iron, black tea and roasted vanilla bean notes. Stays well-focused on the finish. If sticker shock doesnt send you running for the hills, this wine will be more than worth a go. Boldand rubbery now, with aromas of cedary spice, pepper and rich black fruits, this is a full, slightly fierce wine with enough creaminess and depth to bring it full circle. Roasted berry, herbs, spice and leather are all part of...

Die sortentypische Aromatik zeichnet diesen Saint-Joseph in der Nase aus: vielfältige, Gewürznoten, intensive, reife Fruchtnoten von Waldbeeren und gekochten Früchten. Die kräftige Gerbstoffstruktur und der gehaltvolle Körper mit viel Schmelz hinterlassen einen eindeutigen Sinneseindruck im Gaumen. Und genau so, gradlinig und nachhaltig, präsentiert sich sein Finale.

Jaboulet's basic Crozes is a good value in '07, offering complex aromas of smoke, plum, black olive, horse sweat and cracked pepper framed by slightly coarse tannins. Turns firm on the finish, yet remains mouthwatering. Drink now-2017. - J.C. Focused, if a bit taut, with red currant and damson plum notes framed by a hint of cedar on the finish. Drink now. 1,500 cases imported. -JM SummaryTerroir: Jaboulet Crozes Hermitage Rouge Les Jalets is sourced from vineyards located primarily on the plains of the appellation.
