Winemaker Notes

One of the finest red wines of France. When young the color is deep purple, like black cherries, with aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry. It is a full wine with delicate tannins, 100% destemmed, complex. With age this rich nectar takes on scents of leather, truffles, undergrowth and leaf-mold. The Syrah vines, with an average age of 35 years, have an exceptional position on the hill, facing the south. Not a single ray of sunshine misses this slope.

Jeb Dunnuck

Certainly fully mature, the 1996 Hermitage La Chapelle offers a pretty, feminine, cooler climate style with high acidity yet still shows solid sweetness of fruit as well as concentration. Giving up lots of darker berry fruits as well as classic La Chapelle sweet herbs, smoked meats, saddle leather, and bacon fat, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, high yet still integrated acidity, beautiful balance, and outstanding length. A wine that needs 30-60 minutes in a decanter as it gains richness and depth with air, it's drinking at point today, with no upside, yet should hold nicely for another decade if properly stored. The 1991 certainly has a little more opulence, while the 1996 is defined by its acidity. Best After 2022

Paul Jaboulet Aine, France
Paul Jaboulet Aine Winery Video

Paul Jaboulet Aîné has been a trend-setting grower and shipper in the Rhône since 1834. The Jaboulet company was founded by Antoine Jaboulet, and his twin sons, Paul and Henri continued to expand the family business. The elder son ("aîné" in French), Paul, established the company in its present form and gave it his own name. Since then, the company has been run by successive generations of sons from that side of the Jaboulet family.

The House of Paul Jaboulet Aîné is one of the Rhône’s most recognizable wineries. The reputation of Jaboulet wines rests on the quality of the well-situated and well-tended vineyards, on low yields, careful vinification, and diligent aging in oak casks. The Jaboulet family prefers carefully integrated oak aging, in which the influence of wood is never allowed to become excessive. Since this is an important point, they have their own cooper who makes and maintains their stock of barrels.

Jaboulet wines symbolize robustness and elegance, essential qualities of great wines. Their crown jewel is their Hermitage "La Chapelle" which Clive Coates states "is one of the great red wines of the world." Thomas Matthews of Wine Spectator has singled out Jaboulet as a producer which "offers reliable wines across the entire range of appellations (in the northern and southern Rhône)."
