Since the legendary 1961 vintage, which was classed as one of the Twelve mythical wines of the 20th century, Hermitage “la Chapelle” has become one of the world’s most sought-after wines.
Spicy nose with interesting 'rusty tin' character. Soft, plain and earthy palate - has length and structure Winestate Oct-09
96 Points "One of the great wines of the world appears back on form with this lovely rendition of 2003 Hermitage. It is really way too young to drink at the moment - full of graphite and mineral fruit. But slowly a haunting perfume arises, showing delightful red fruits on a muscular and perfectly balanced palate punctuated by lacy tannins. A superstar in the making and a keeper for sure." The Imported Wine Handbook, Angus Hughson (Australia), August 08
