HERMITAGE BL 10 JABOULET CHAPE
PAUL JABOULET 2010 HERMITAGE BLANC LA CHAPELLE
Item: #322445
Bottle Size:750ML
$272.99
Quantity

ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS: "The 2010 Hermitage La Chapelle Blanc is 100% Marsanne from the vineyard known as Maison Blanche situated at the top of the Read More...
Hermitage appellation, above the famed lieu-dit for white Hermitage, Les Rocoules. This cuvee is very limited in availability so I’ll keep my notes brief. Aromas of white currants, pepper, quince and apricot marmalade are present in this full-bodied, gorgeously rich, pure, stunning white. Completely locked down at present, it should be forgotten for 8-10 years and drunk over the following two decades. It will unquestionably be a very long-lived white wine."

accented by licorice, black pepper, and piquant fruit pit. Polished and glycerin-rich like its 2009 counterpart, this predictably musters an even more remarkable sense of primary fruit juiciness for an effect at once soothing and invigorating, its bitter and pungent elements lending a medicinal cast to a palate-staining finish. It ought to be worth following for several more years, although there is plenty of incentive to revisit and relish it soon."

some of the best everyday quaffers-- like those featured in our Wine of the Month and Wine of the Month 2 programs-- that don't cost a fortune. This is one of those wines. Syrah and Grenache are excellent partners in wine, both grapes enjoying warm climates such as those found in the south of France (or Spain or other parts of the 'new world'). This wine also hails from Mas de Boislauzon, a winery with holdings in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes du Rhône, comprised of brother and sister team (and fifth generation winemakers) Christine and Daniel Chaussy, which is another significant feather in this wine's pedigree cap. But what it really came down to, as it usually does, is the fact that this wine is delicious and reasonably priced. It's a good summer red in that it's not too big in body as one might find in a Cabernet Sauvignon or Cab blend, but big enough to serve with red meat at a late afternoon or early evening barbecue or affair.

The nose is an attractive mélange of mixed red and blue fruits, a touch of hillside bramble, dark spices, sea salt, light florals and a hint of cured meats. In the mouth, the rounded, sexy texture is kept trim with acidic structure in what amounts to a beautiful pas de deux on the palate. Fruit is king as jammy raspberry and strawberry fruit intermingle with violets and other darker florals; again a touch of spice... excellent structure, rounded tannins keep it lean and uplifting as the finish adds a touch of earth to the rich fruits.

environment and tries to let the soil express itself. In this perspective, He is always looking for more vivacious grounds for the vine to grow on (I adopted the principles of biodynamic), and, in the cellar for always purer wines that let as much as possible the various lots express their specificities and unique characteristics.
A team of 7 people all year long plus a seasonal staff of a dozen people who work from the winter solstice (late december) to the summer solstice (late june), 40 hectares and 6 different grape varieties: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Merlot and Cabernet-Sauvignon for red wines and Viognier for white wines, an organic and biodynamic culture with no chemical fertilizer, no weed-killer and no insecticide since 2002 and the obtention of the ECOCERT certification in 2008; a very specific attention given to the balance and the life of soils; a naturally low yield (around 38 hl/hectare); choices that make it possible to extract as much minerality and expression from the soil and give vivacious wines a high delicacy and a subtle complexity.

We love it when we can get a good deal to you, especially when it means getting a declassified Cornas at Cotes du Rhone pricing. Such is the case with a wine from the young winemaker, Matthieu Barret, who comes from a generation of winemakers (his grandfather founded Domaine du Coulet after WWII), and Matthieu has farmed biodynamically in the Northern Rhone since 2002. His Cornas, Domaine Coulet, demands $50 and above price points and routinely scores 93-96 points from Wine Spectator. James Molesworth of WS called Matthieu “…the future in Cornas (and) ...the single most exciting new domaine in the appellation today.” Had this wine come from a different zip code, the price would change dramatically. But as the old Real Estate saying goes, it’s all about “location, location, location,” and it is you Dear Reader, who benefits from this districting loophole.

The wine we are offering is Matthieu Barret’s 2013 “Petit Ours Brun”, or “Little Brown Bear” Cotes du Rhone. A wine made of 100% Syrah from vineyards which lie between Cornas and St. Joseph, with 40-year-old vines and aged in neutral barrels. This sumptuous wine is generous with violets, boysenberry, and red fruits, and finishes with a smoky meaty character and crushed rock. This is a seamless, complex wine without getting ponderous, and is utterly charming and delicious. This is a no-brainer of a Northern Rhone buy and is definitely a wine to “back the truck” on, or in this case, fill your cave with this “Little Brown Bear.”

ROBERT PARKER 95-97 POINTS - "The outrageous, inky/purple-hued 2009 St.-Joseph Vignes de l’Hospice boasts scents of roast beef, bacon fat, black currants, blackberries, camphor, Read More...
licorice and subtle smoke along with great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a fantastic finish. It will be drinkable early in life and keep for two decades."

This wine originates from a monopoly of the best terroirs adjoining what were previously the Jean-Louis Grippat and Vallouit estates. This is a unique expression of the best situated slopes of the Saint-Joseph appellation. And when it comes to the winemaking: "...no one in the wine world is better at ‘raising’ a wine (or as the French call it elevage) than Marcel Guigal, who learned the skills from his father, Etienne. Because everyone tends to focus on vintage conditions and terroir, the importance of a wine’s elevage is often overlooked, but Guigal’s unusually long tank, foudre and small barrel aging regime for all his red wines as well as several of his whites results in an array of remarkable wines time and time again." - Robert Parker

ROBERT PARKER 87-89 POINTS: "The 2010 St.-Joseph displays the wet granite, stony character one expects in these wines in addition to abundant fruit (cassis and black cherries). Ripe and medium to full-bodied, this impressive wine comes from hillside vineyards situated between Mauves (the home of the great winemaking family of Jean-Louis Chave) and slightly further north above Tournon."
