Description

Hermitage, La Chapelle 1978 Paul Jaboulet Aîné 4 bts - Stained, scuffed and bin soiled labels, excellent color and clarity, 1 capsule cut open, 5 bts - Excellent levels, color and clarity, slightly scuffed labels and capsules, 2 slightly sunken corks, 1 cut opened capsuleIn 2016, this retains all its splendour, dimension and sheer, juicy excitement. The great structure is still there, of course, but in the background, with the liquorice, tobacco and cocoa dominating. A very complete experience, ultra satisfying and balancing power and succulence as brilliantly as ever. It is mature Syrah-gamey too, an incredible autumn/winter wine (or an English summer wine, which is when I last drank it!). Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 1009 bts (2 sc)Estimates are per lot
