La Chapelle De Rouyac

Paul Chapelle

Gravières Santenay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

What a deal/qpr -& released with some age. Persistent cherry life savers, some gamey notes. I used a big ol Pinot Noir glass for first time, kinda fun. Day 2 notes: so much deeper & nuanced, with the cherry life savers giving way to a meatier, meaner body. The QPR is now glowing. — 15 days ago

Paul Jaboulet Aîné

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2013

Checking in— 3+ hour decant and yeah it’s very young and very tannic. Not much to show at this point, mostly smoke, black pepper and some subdued fruit. Hold, or really don’t buy at all because there are too many better wines at its price point. Jaboulet, I think, is yesteryear’s news. Really nothing impressive since 1990. Young or not. — a month ago

Domaine Rossignol Trapet

Petite Chapelle Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Vibrant aromas of red cherries and dark cherries, a touch of Coca-Cola which I always associate to cherries and the “élevage”, spices and some earthy tones too. The palate is great, fresh, fairly powerful, the fruit has energy and the strong finish is delicious and has very good length. Serious stuff, good now and built for the long haul. 93-94

Un nez moyennement aromatique au départ mais qui s’ouvre de façon éclatante sur des griottes, du coca-cola un peu, des épices douces et un petit côté terreux. La bouche est puissante et fine, une belle texture de tannins qui accompagne ce fruit énergique, belle fraîcheur et finesse aussi avec une finale puissante, de belle longueur et délicieuse. Du sérieux, bâti pour longtemps mais un délice en ce moment aussi. 92-93

Carelle Sous la Chapelle Volnay 1er Cru 2016

Let's go Chiefs! Decanted for a hour. Lush dark fruit, earthy, and subtle charcoal notes. Needs a solid decant or more time before drinking. — a month ago

Chapelle Aux Loups Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay 2019

Distinctive in its slight acidity that isn't overly harsh. Notes of peach, maybe some citrus. Paired well with parmigiano cheese. — 6 days ago

Soft Red Chateau Series Red Blend

Rebuy - This is sweet but has an earthy fruity flavor that we loved. — 21 days ago

Domaine De La Grand'Cour (Jean-Louis Dutraive)

Chapelle des Bois Fleurie Gamay 2018

Finesse and power. Should continue to evolve and reveal more over the next 5-10 years. Good fruit concentration without feeling heavy. Structured. — a month ago

Chapelle d'Ausone

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Great second wine...possibly the best one I've had. Drinking it with Chateau Ausone you instantly recognise the same DNA and this actually had more power. For a third of the price you are pretty much drinking the same wine... — a month ago
