What We Say

The world-renowned, mythical La Chapelle Cuvée - the benchmark of all Syrah.

What They Say

The La Chapelle cuvée comes from a terroir overlooking the Rhône where a small “Saint-Christophe” chapel is erected. The 2006 vintage of La Chapelle is fabulous, this wine offers an impressive density and structure. It is obvious that this great hermitage has enormous aging potential. Bettane & Desseauve selection, Wine Fair 2014: 17/20 "Powerful, intense, a concentrated wine, but without the palate or the silky tannins of 2007. Deconstruction quite powerful, muscular. Spicy finish." Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné is the work of Antoine Jaboulet who created this estate in 1834. Paul is one of the two sons with Henri, who successfully developed the wines of the Rhône valley and particularly those of Tain-L ' Hermitage. Since 2006, Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné has been owned by Champagne winegrowers, the Frey family, which also owns the Médoc Château La Lagune classified growth. The famous Bordeaux oenologist Denis Dubourdieu is the consultant of Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné.

The great cuvée of this Rhone house is the Hermitage La Chapelle which is one of the summits of the appellation.

About The Producer Paul Jaboulet Ainé

Antoine Jaboulet founded his estate in 1834 in Tain-l'Hermitage, he remained in the family until 2006 when the house was bought by the Frey group, owner of vines in Champagne and Bordeaux (Château la Lagune). The heritage is therefore exceptional: 125 hectares of vines, 25 of which are located on the famous Hermitage hill. It is the oenologist Caroline Frey who today manages a house with an already established reputation but which is calmly returning to an excellent level. Since 2013, the Jaboulet vineyard has officially been converting to organic farming. But beyond the certifications, the objective of the house remains unchanged: to preserve the quality of the fruit, to vinify with rigor, and to age with finesse in order to best reveal each terroir of this great Rhône vineyard.
