Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 129

This fabulous, blockbuster has been totally unevolved since bottling, but at the Jaboulet tasting, it was beginning to reveal some of its formidable potential. A saturated opaque purple color is followed by aromas of cassis, minerals, and hot bricks/wood fire. Super-ripe and full-bodied, with a massive mid-section, teeth-staining extract, and mouth-searing tannin, it is a monster-sized La Chapelle.

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson

A torrid summer with little rain and good weather during the harvest led to a Chapelle of immense potential. Burly and not as seamless as the '90, with layers of this wine's typical plum, mineral and blackberry notes. While monolithic like a granite block, all the pieces should come together as it ages.--La Chapelle vertical. 9,000 cases made.

Dark burgundy-red color w/only a hint of amber edge; explosive nose of black fruit, cassis, and exotic spices; similar flavors on the palate, excellent grip, intense yet elegant; very complex; soft integrated tannins; amazingly intense long finish; a great Hermitage that is drinking well now and has plenty of life ahead.
