Lot #319. Paul Jaboulet Aîné Hermitage La Chapelle 2012

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Region: France, Rhône, Hermitage.
Score: 97+ WA.
"The grand vin is the 2012 Hermitage La Chapelle, and it lives up to the billing in 2012. Coming mostly from the Meal and aged in just 20% new French oak, it’s a blockbuster that exhibits thrilling, mineral-drenched notes of spiced dark fruits, beef blood, black olive and toast. Full-bodied, deep, layered and incredibly concentrated, it has a stacked mid-palate and enough tannin to warrant another 4-5 years of bottle age. It will have 2-3 decades of overall prime drinking, and certainly evolve for longer. The revamped Jaboulet firm, under the leadership of Caroline Frey, seems to have settled in and are now producing one serious lineup of wines from throughout the Rhône Valley. Wine Advocate #216, Dec 2014
Provenance: The Cascade Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $850
