1982 Hermitage La Chapelle Paul Jaboulet Aine 75cl
A bottle of 1982 Hermitage La Chapelle from producer Paul Jaboulet Ainé, grown in the north of the Rhone valley on one of France's steepest vineyards.
Hermitage AOC is an appellation in the northern Rhone valley, producing red wine from the Syrah grape variety.
'The 1982 is a wonderful surprise. It has always been delicious It has put on weight yet retains its exotic, over-the-top style. Fully mature, but capable of lasting another decade or more, the 1982 La Chapelle possesses a dark garnet color with an amber edge. The glorious nose of Asian spices, roasted espresso, creamy cassis fruit, and hints of Peking duck lathered with hoisin sauce gives this wine, with its notes of prunes, plums, and cassis, an exotic yet compelling allure. 92/100' Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 2000
