Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

($170) Deep, saturated ruby. Intensely spicy aromas of blackberry, bitter cherry, tobacco and minerals, with a complicating note of black pepper that became more pronounced with air. This is quite fresh and lively for the vintage, showing tangy red and dark berry flavors and a solid, chewy texture. Finishes with considerable finesse.

The finest example of this cuvee since 1990, the 2003 Hermitage La Chapelle (50,000 bottles rather than the normal 96,000+ were produced) possesses an inky/purple color as well as a tremendous bouquet of creme de cassis, crushed flowers, truffles, and licorice. Full-bodied and powerful (15% natural alcohol) with good freshness and definition, this big, rich, dense, reassuringly great La Chapelle should be cellared for 5-8 years, and drunk over the following 20-25.

Wine Spectator | 96

Deceptively graceful at first, with a Burgundian-like perfume, this quickly delivers a torrent of fruit--blackberry, boysenberry and black currant--that cascades over itself, pushed from behind by flavors of mocha, mineral, tar and violets. Long, sweet and pure through a densely structured finish.

Wine was double decanted 2 hours before. This was compared to Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon 1997 and 1998 Scrio (Syrah from Bolgheri). The La Chapelle showed very well with its trademark pepper nose. There is a delicate sweetness that is well balanced with acidity, and the wine has good structure. The mid-palate is intense, fat and succulent.
