1990 Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage "La Chapelle" Rhone Valley France




1990 Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage "La Chapelle" Rhone Valley France 

Dark, medium intensity in color, “belle robe” of dark rubis with garnet nuances. At first, the nose was also a bit tight and closed with hints of dry dust, maybe a touch of cork. So I decanted It and after about 20 minutes, it started to really express itself: expressive, fresh and youthful with dark berries, earthy notes and hints of spice and oak. The palate is generous, full, attractive, balanced and rich, conveying a young and vigorous profile, exhibiting dark fruit, soil, spice and present yet well integrated tannins. Great texture and structure overall and a long, rich finish, even it is not the best example I tasted; yet, it still remain a pretty damn good bottle of wine.

Enjoy,
