2007 Hermitage, La Chapelle, Paul Jaboulet Aîné

Hermitage, La Chapelle, Paul Jaboulet Aine
The 2007 Hermitage La Chapelle is a pretty, dark ruby/plum-colored effort displaying aromas of camphor, loamy soil, pepper, herbs and red and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied, soft, round and expansive, it is an endearing Hermitage to enjoy over the next decade. The dramatic differences between the 2007 and 2009 are remarkable when these two wines are tasted side by side.

It did not take long for Caroline Frey to whip this somewhat rudderless (following the death of Gerard Jaboulet in the late 1990s) estate into shape. Moreover, it is clear they have moved away from a large negociant operation to estate-bottled domaine wines, which all of the following represent. If you have been off the Jaboulet bandwagon over the last decade or so, now is the time to jump back on for both whites and reds. They still own just under 300 acres spread throughout the Rhone Valley, with their biggest holdings 52 acres in Hermitage and 112+ acres at their Domaine de Thalabert in Crozes-Hermitage. As I have indicated before, the Frey family has instituted a strict selection process in order to cull out the finest lots for their flagship wine - Hermitage La Chapelle.
