    Dark brick. Violets on the nose. Dried out. A bit furry and lacking integrity. Sweet. Ungracious.

    Evolved and a touch funky, with a marijuana edge to its exotic herbs, olive, truffle, pepper and espresso-laced bouquet, the 1959 Hermitage la Chapelle is medium to full-bodied and shows some cracks around the edges, with dry tannin and edgy acidity. Nevertheless, it has surprising concentration and is still enjoyable, albeit, it needs to be drunk up. This might be a case where owners will regret always putting a bottle back in the cellar, as opposed to opening those great bottles and drinking them with friends.

  • 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.
