Hermitage, La Chapelle 1961 

Paul Jaboulet Aîné 

u. 1x4cm, 2x4.5cm, believed to be late release, damp-stained and scuffed labels, 1 wine-stained label and neck label, scuffed capsules, 1 sunken cork, 2 signs of old seepage

The colour is barely touched by age. A great bouquet of smoky violets and smoked reindeer meat. The extraordinary richness on the palate is astonishing. Sheer, rich coffee. Unparalleled glycerol. Rich leather, black winegums and liquorice. A masterpiece of gigantic proportions. A later bottle had an incredible nose of damp forests and a deep, violet and iron taste. Gloriously sweet and ripe. Drunk recently with Pétrus '61 and Latour '61 and, for some, it was the winner! One can understand why. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
