  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

    A saturated purple/plum color is accompanied by gamy, blackberry, and smoked meat aromas. While this wine is rich and full-bodied, the question mark reflects its gritty, astringent tannin and austere personality. It is a large-scaled, boldly-flavored, but ferociously tannic La Chapelle.

    From a low-yield, hot-summer vintage, this full-bodied Syrah is still very young and tough, with a plummy, ripe character, chalk, mineral and leather notes and excellent concentration. The tannins are beginning to integrate nicely, but it's still hard. Needs time.

    Very dark briary blackish ruby. Quite subtle nose - quite developed - years ahead of the 1996. Thick, dusty, very evolved. Lots of pleasure there already of a discernibly Hermitage sort - though it's a bit worrying how developed it is. Very dry, as opposed to sweet.

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.
