The grapes from the various plots of this estate, situated on the Hermitage hill, are vinified separately, right up until the final blending, which takes place one year after the harvest. This is how we create our two red Hermitage wines: “La Chapelle” and “La Petite Chapelle”. Our first vintage was 2001.

Decanter Fine Wine Encounter Masterclass. "Very fresh, bright fruit, but with some grip. Spiky – not yet fully integrated. Jaboulet made reference to the heatwave 2003 vintage here, which has to be taken into consideration. Such was the stress suffered in the vineyard that year that even in 2004, the vines were still recovering, he said." www.decanter.com (Global), February 2009
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep black cherry colour, limpid and attractively bright.
Intense and aromatic with sweet spices, floral notes of peonies and very ripe fruit.
Powerful and harmonious attack, noble tannins and a very long finish.
