Paul Jaboulet Aîné La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2009 (1500ml)

$549

It will be thrilling to follow the 2009 and 2010 la Chapelles over the coming 40-50 years. Much more sexy, voluptuous and layered than the 2010, the 2009 Hermitage la Chapelle offers sensational levels of extract and concentration to go with notes of cassis, black raspberries, coffee bean, toasted bread and sweet spice. Beautifully pure, layered, and yet massively endowed, with sweet tannin, it will be drinkable at an earlier age than the 2010, but I suspect will be just as long lived. It's a true tour de force in Hermitage! Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

dark berry compote, rich pie crust, vanilla, cocoa butter, botanicals & cigar box ~ elegant entry of berries & lavender ~ good acid & lift yet strong tannins for long haul

Kirsch, vanillin, black cherry, seemingly made in a bordelaise style. Makes sense.

Yes!! This is currently a big, bold, inky wine. But the elegance and femininity is lurking, waiting to show its silky nature in a few more years. Good thing to come for those that can hold this for 10-20+ years.... amazing.

Not even close to drinkable yet. Need another 5 years at least but will for 50. Great back bone and will be amazing.

A little young but we couldn't resist so we dragged it out of the cellar. Life can be short so why not enjoy!

Not what I expected. Less savory more ripe (but not overly) fruit. I immediately wanted charred ribeye or lamb chops I missed the earthiness in the wine.
