    In comparison to the '59, the 1949 Hermitage la Chapelle was gorgeous. Possessing an evolved, almost sherry-like color, it offers sweet notes of creme caramel, tobacco, toffee and coffee bean. Sweet, full-bodied, mouth filling and light on its feet, it's certainly falls into the |old wine| category, yet has terrific breadth and length, ample texture, and delivers an incredible amount of pleasure. I've no idea where it goes from here, but would happily drink a bottle today

  • The Maison Paul Jaboulet Aine has seen a change of hands over the past decade, but the history goes back to a single winemaking family. As the Rhone region gained in popularity through the 1900s, the Frey family began courting the estate. The Freys had made their name in Champagne and as the owners of Bordeaux's Chateau La Lagune; they wanted to revamp the Jaboulet estate as they had done for estates in other French appellations.

    Under the direction of Caroline Frey, they have succeeded, using strictly biodynamic techniques to produce the finest wines. The excellence of Paul Jaboulet Elder wines based on fruits high quality, enhanced by the careful vinification and aging of great finesse. For the finest appellations of the Rhone Valley, it is in the purest expression of terroir wines are born, their balance, complexity, longevity.
