HERMITAGE, LA CHAPELLE 1972 PAUL JABOULET AINE
Hermitage, La Chapelle 1972 Paul Jaboulet Aîné
u. 1x3cm, 2 levels into the neck, bin-soiled and scuffed labels, neck labels, and capsules, 1 torn and partially missing label, wrinkled capsules, 2 slightly raised corks, 1 slightly sunken cork, excellent color and clarity

There are massive 'legs' on the three vintages 1972, 1971 and 1970. The wine falls slowly down the glass leaving a trail like a snail, a sure sign of glycerol and 'fat'. A bouquet of glorious chocolate and iron. . Smoky blackcurrants. Tremendous, almost sweet scent. Smells like a great, much older wine from the Côte de Nuits. Vanilla pods and cinnamon sticks. Russian leather. Huge tannin and acidity. Great vegetal richness with a chocolate and coffee aftertaste and smoky fruit. A real pleasure to drink now and a wine that is very 'together'. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
