Paul Jaboulet Aîné La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2011

9.123 ratings on Delectable
$135

A gorgeous intensity of plum, spice and grilled meat on the nose. Cloves and hints of dried spices. This is a big, structured La Chappelle. Full and powerful with chewy tannins and a long, long finish... Tar, spice, dried meat and asphalt... This is another 1991 in the making. James Suckling

Hitting spots. Such a great bottle. Easily accessible fruit with a solid backbone.

Yea baby! Came out swinging. Lots of wine here but balanced very well. Needed a good amount of air but this was absolutely singing.

Red fruit, peppers and violets. This wine is best for drinking soon as it doesn't have the fruit to last for much more than 8-10 years.

Brooding nose of leather, smoke olive black cherry tar, dried meat and licorice, deep and complex. Massive but tight on palate, loads of cherry olivine extract, but quite sharp. Very mineral, big mid, acid could be higher. Very syrah, and high caliber juice...far too young to drink though. Give at least 7-8 more years..2011 vintage.

This may be the smoothest Hermitage I've had @ £83 it's like a pig rolling in velvet
