    One of the more disappointing bottles I have had of this wine (I have drunk close to three cases as it is the red wine of the vintage), this example revealed a dark ruby/garnet color with considerable amber at the edge.

    Dark brick. Violets. Game. Tender. Lovely wine that no-one could object to. Fresh, jewel-bright. Hint of torrefaction. Very complete. Brisk and lively. Quite impressively lone. Intriguing. You want to drink more! Long, doesn't give everything initially.

    Rain at the end of the harvest set the stage for a mediocre vintage. A bit light for La Chapelle, but delicate and elegant, with black truffle, horse stable and cherry character. Turns astringent on the mouthpuckeringly chewy finish.--La Chapelle vertical. Drink now through 2005. 'PM

  • 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.
