La Chapelle Hermitage takes us back to 1224, when knight Henri-Gaspard de Sterimberg, back from the Crusades, decided to settle as a hermit on a small hill. By building a small chapel and surrounding it with Syrah vines, le Chevalier de Sterimberg started a legendary setting, the Hermitage Hill. Since 1919, the Jaboulet family and then the Frey family have succeeded each other in cultivating the vines of this now iconic cuvée. La Chapelle is a mix of the great terroirs of western Hermitage, where the altitude is highest: Les Bessards (granite), Le Méal and Les Roucoules (pebble). The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (15% new) and cement concrete eggs.

The 2019 Hermitage La Chapelle comes from the company's vineyards on the western half of the Hermitage slope, mainly Le Méal, but with substantial contributions from Les Rocoules and Les Bessards. Classic notes of cassis, black olives, mocha and roasted meat are joined by hints of baking spices in a wine that is full, deep, dense and rich, with a velvety texture and a lingering finish.

On the nose, the Hermitage La Chapelle Rouge boasts exciting aromas of roasted meat, mocha, crushed stone, plum and cassis. It is full, concentrated, richly tannic and velvety in structure. The finish is long and complex, with hints of ground pepper and salted licorice. a fantastic glass that received 98+ Points from Perker and 97/100 from Vinous.

The famous Domaine de la Chapelle, previously known in combination with the name of Paul Jaboulet. In 2006, the Frey family purchased the company. Caroline Frey (Château La Lagune) then took over as head winemaker. She ensured, among other things, a conversion to a fully organic working method, which has translated into BIO certification since 2016. Major investments are also being made now. Work is underway on a new cellar specifically for the wines of Domaine de la Chapelle. For this reason, Domaine de la Chapelle is separated from the wines of Paul Jaboulet, so that all attention can be focused on these wines.

La Chapelle Hermitage takes us back to the year 1224, when knight Henri-Gaspard de Sterimberg, back from the Crusades, decides to settle as a hermit on a small hill. By building a small chapel and surrounding it with Syrah vines, le Chevalier de Sterimberg started a legendary backdrop, the Hermitage Hill. Since 1919, the Jaboulet family and then the Frey family have succeeded each other in cultivating the vines of their iconic wines. Founded in 1834 by the eldest (Aîné) son of winegrower Antoine Jaboulet, it developed into a monument of viticulture in the Rhone region. After the Swiss Frey family, in the person of Jean-Jacques Frey, took over in 2006, it received a new impulse, thanks to investments in vineyards, housing and winemaking facilities.

The Frey family has been involved in winemaking for generations. In addition to being the owner of one of the most beautiful vineyards in the Champagne region and shareholder of the prestigious Maison Billecart-Salmon champagne house, the family also owns Château La Lagune in Haut-Médoc. Caroline Frey, the eldest daughter of Jean-Jacques, made her first wine from Château La Lagune in 2004. Today she is ultimately responsible for the wines of Château La Lagune and, together with Frederic Jaboulet, for the wines of Paul Jaboulet Aîné.
