Wine Critic Reviews:

The 1997 Hermitage La Chapelle is a monumental wine...The wine looks impressive, with a viscosity and unctuous richness. There is amazing fat and chewiness, as well as spectacular aromatics of over-ripe black currants and blackberries intermingled with barbeque spices, soy, and jammy black fruits. The tannin seems lost in the wine's full-bodied, silky-textured, voluptuously rich, staggeringly concentrated style. The mid-palate explodes with sweetness, glycerin, and extract. The finish lasts for 40+ seconds...It is undoubtedly a mind-blowing Hermitage La Chapelle. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2035.

Sokolin 1997 Paul Aine Jaboulet Hermitage La Chapelle Tasting Notes:

You can't do justice to a Mouton Rothschild without describing it as a flawless drink. No other words come even close to a truthful representation of this astonishing wine. The 1997 bottle is certainly one of the best that have ever come out of this appellation.

Classic Cabernet both on the nose and the palate. Thanks to the utraripe, delicious tannins and prevalent, sweet black currant flavor this vintage is so delightfully drinkable that you won't be able to stop. The nose offers a bit of cedar, cassis, and even coffee. The admirably persistent aftertaste will give you enough time to get another glass of this beauty and enjoy its complexity and impressive concentration all over again. It's aging with great dignity and will be drinkable for many more years to come.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer P.Jaboulet: With its roots dating back to the 19th century, Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aine is a wonderful winery located in the Rhone Valley. The unique terroir of the landscape and the immense passion and talent involved come together like fine wine and food to create the perfect combination. With cutting-edge biodynamic methods in their repertoire, they're ready to take the world by storm.. A single sampling of this glorious wine will send you floating on a sea of perfectly ripe grape juice. It's got a heavenly feeling on the palate, with just the right amount of tannins making their presence known. With rich and spicy blackberries, an earthy and lush forest aroma underneath and some tasteful pepper adding a bit of punch, the flavor profile is astounding.

Region Rhone: While the Northern Rhone produces only about 5% of all wine coming out of the Rhone Valley, the quality of these bottles is not to be underestimated. The terroir in this region is heavenly for growing Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne or Rousanne - the only permitted grapes in the AOC. Picture this - the Rhone flows through the valley like an azure thread piercing the landscape, a reflection of the dreamy skies hovering above the vineyards, ready to produce rainfall at a moment's notice. The rocky soil of the steep, almost surreal hillsides provides a bountiful feast for the grapevine roots. The flavors and texture of Northern Rhone wines tell you everything you need to know as soon as your lips touch the elixir, like a whisper in the vigorous valley winds As per the Southern Rhone wine, it is like taking a plunge into a whirlpool of juicy flavor. Every sip explodes forward like a crashing tsunami, bathing your tastebuds in delicious aromas of prune, chocolate, grass, and black fruit. The wines are so compelling that it can be hard to drink them casually at a social event without getting lost in their intricate textures and emotional depths. Let's set sail together, and drink deep from these luxurious bottles with our friends and loved ones.
Type of Wine Hermitage: Hermitage provides a bouquet of scents and flavors with a texture that cannot be fully deciphered. Expect to be blown away by an orchestral composition of primal blackberries and black raspberries, earthy minerals, playful spice and a thick bassline of smoke. Their immense aging potential makes them ideal candidates for hoarding in your cellar!
OWC No
Varietal Shiraz/Syrah: Syrah, or also commonly known as Shiraz is one of the darkest thick and full-bodied wine filled with aromatic hints of blueberry, blackberry, and some spicy peppery notes. Primarily grown in France, you can easily find a bottle throughout Australia, Spain, Italy, Chile, and Argentina.
