There's rather muscular grip for the vintage, and the long finish shows slightly taut tannins but is a bit shy on depth. Should unwind with cellaring. Best from 2010 through 2018. 2,250 cases made. — JM

This was easily the best showing I’ve had from this bottle, which often shows a much more rustic, evolved character.- JD

This was the first vintage where the Frey family had control of the estate. The 2006 Hermitage la Chapelle is an outstanding effort yet clearly comes in behind what has been achieved in more recent vintages. Impressive...   This was the first vintage where the Frey family had control of the estate. The 2006 Hermitage la Chapelle is an outstanding effort yet clearly comes in behind what has been achieved in more recent vintages. Impressive smoky black fruits, some meatiness and savory earth characteristics, medium to full body, good concentration, and ripe tannins all make for a rock solid, impressive 2006 that’s best enjoyed over the coming decade or so.

Label

The name of Hermitage La Chapelle is linked to the little chapel of Saint-Christophe overlooking the terraced vineyards along the Rhone. Maison Paul Jaboulet Aine has been the sole owner since 1919.

Hermitage La Chapelle is a blend of terroirs, including the prestigious hillsides of Meal and Bessards. Each one provides its own aromatic characteristics, as well as an elegant tannin structure, giving the wine great aging potential.

Winery

Paul Jaboulet Aine

For almost two centuries, the Jaboulet family has shared a common passion for the Rhone Valley, its history, its terroir, its exceptional people and wines.

In 1834, Antoine Jaboulet started working the land on the hills of Hermitage. Through his hard work and passion, he was able to produce a wine of exceptional quality. The business was passed on to his sons Henri and Paul, with the latter later giving his name to the company.

Since then, the generations have continued to succeed one another until in January 2006, the Frey family, longstanding winemakers in Champagne and owners of Chateau La Lagune in Bordeaux, acquired Maison Paul Jaboulet Aine thus adding to its portfolio of prestigious names.

The company’s hundred or so hectares of vineyards are tended with the greatest possible care. The wide diversity of terroirs and the influence of micro-climates favor the production of Syrah, the principal variety and the sole red grape, while Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier are used for the white wines.

Jaboulet wines represent generations of hard work and a passion for excellence and these values are adhered to by an unswerving commitment to improving vineyards, and through strategic acquisitions and work in the cellars, while respecting the environment at the same time.
