Vegetal and tangy purple fruit. Sour cherry, bramble blackcurrant, salinity iron and some stink. Very feral and lively. Good stuff.

More fruit forward the other mid 90s bottles I have had of this wine - lacked the classic pepper of Syrah and had a strong bacon fat nose that took me further north...would’ve been interesting to enjoy the bottle over a longer period of time

Acid (somewhat lactic & volitile), some flesh and lingering silty tannin. A solid expression. Fifth time tasting

Developed beautifully in the glass. Great licorice and black fruit with a wonderful meaty quality. Great finesse. This is the time to drink this. #lachapelle #hermitage #jaboulet
