Purchased in 2001. The color has lightened a bit from a darker red/purple from an earlier bottle I opened in 2005 or '06. Fragrant nose; herbs, cherries, smoke, and leather. Acidic, yet balanced with tannins. Medium-bodied, full of dark berries and a touch of sweetness on the palate. A nice long finish. An excellent value for the money.

Pretty, with a supple opulence enveloped in fat tannins and ripe fruit. Delivers plum, blackberry and black cherry character. Tight and firm for now, even closed. Needs time. Best from 2003 through 2010.

Saturated medium ruby. Deep, highly concentrated aroma of black fruits, bitter chocolate, shoe polish and humus.

I retasted the 1999 Hermitage La Chapelle. While it is unquestionably an excellent effort, it is well below the standards of the appellation’s benchmark producers. It requires another 3–5 years of cellaring, and should last twenty-five years, but it will always lack volume and density, and possess a certain austerity.

Smell this wine and you’re smelling Hermitage, from the warm granite baking in the sun at the top of the hill to the ripeness of the fruit hanging on the vines to the garrigue that surrounds them. Those scents continue into the taste, carried on sandy, firm tannins, dense yet fragrant. It’s powerful wine, the alcohol extra fuel to the roasted cherry flavors, yet it somehow remains elegant, streamlined, all of a piece. It’s a bit shut down right now, so leave it in the cellar for another few years.
