  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

    A dark ruby/plum color, the bouquet offers scents of damp forest, underbrush, prune, truffles, and roasted meats. Medium-bodied, soft, attractively rich, fresh, and vigorous, this excellent La Chapelle can be drunk now, or aged for 15 more years.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    A hot summer and thick-skinned grapes seem to have saved the vintage from the bad rain. This impressive '94 shows balance and refined tannins, but the finish is a bit chewy and hard now. Beautifully fresh and clean, with subtle vanilla, blackberry, spice, mocha and chocolate.--La Chapelle vertical. 7,500 cases made.

  • 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.
