International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 94

Red-ruby. Expressive nose combines currant, roast coffee, chicory, underbrush and smoke. Suave yet penetrating in the mouth, with complex flavors of redcurrant, iron, minerals, smoke and tobacco. Finishes with dusty tannins and excellent length, though there still some acidity to be absorbed. This is showing well now, though its slightly more advanced aromatics suggest it will not be as long-lived as the '99.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 133

The outstanding, elegant 1998 Hermitage La Chapelle's dark plum/purple color is followed by scents of new saddle leather, black currants, blackberries, and underbrush. In the mouth, the wine reveals sweet tannin, medium to full body, excellent depth, and an intriguing smokiness.

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson

What a great wine. Full-bodied, with crushed berry, smoke and grilled aromas, all presented quite subtly. Stands out for its natural, down-to-earth taste of clean, pure, shining fruit. A pleasure to drink. Tempting now. 7,765 cases made.

Some nice fruit; however, does not present like the last bottle I tried some 5 years ago. I think this bot could be faulty.

Rhone sleeper. This is a great wine; deep and complex. Wonderful nose of earthy fruit and flavors of currant, tobacco and leather that just don't quit. Nice wine.
