Hermitage, La Chapelle 1978

Paul Jaboulet Aîné

u.1x4cm, 5 levels into the neck, scuffed, damp-stained, and slightly nicked labels and neck labels, slightly scuffed capsules, slightly sunken corks

In 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
