Very aromatic, refined and intriguing. A medium-bodied wine that opens up with crisp, citrusy notes that are a bit sour, then delivers freshly crushed red berries, dried herbs and cassis in a rather narrow range. Not much seduction here, but there is a mineral, iron, wet earth and terroir quality that is unmistakably unique and keeps you coming back for more. Cellar for years. Best from 2005 through 2015.

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 red-ruby color. Brooding aromas of black currant, licorice, gunflint and spices. Thick, dense and brooding, with sweet cassis, pepper and tobacco flavors framed and carried by firm acidity. Comes across as very ripe and broad, but this bottle at least does not show the porty character that some past vintages have displayed at the same stage. Finishes with firm tannins, hints of licorice and dark chocolate, and serious spice.

Saturated, opaque ruby red. Full-bodied. highly extracted. quite tannic. Red fruits, minerals, earth. Solid and well-proportioned, with tough tannins not obscuring generous fruit flavors. This is too backward for current consumption. A long-term cellar wine with great potential.

The 1991 Hermitage La Chapelle, which also had a 40-day maceration, was harvested terrace by terrace because of the unsettled weather. It is successful, with a personality not far removed from the 1985. Soft and ripe, it reveals an excellent deep purple color, a rich, unformed but intense nose, medium to full-bodied flavors, excellent concen- tration, sweet tannins, and low acidity. It should drink well for 15 years.

A saturated purple/plum color is accompanied by gamy, blackberry, and smoked meat aromas. While this wine is rich and full-bodied, the question marks reflects its gritty, astringent tannin and austere personality. At present, it is less of a sure bet than the 1996 or 1997. However, it is a large-scaled, boldly-flavored, but ferociously tannic La Chapelle. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035.
