(12-1999) After a hot summer followed by rain at harvest, this "miracle" vintage produced many gorgeous northern Rhône Syrahs. Balanced, racy, elegant, fresh and sweet-tasting, with smooth tannins. Aromas of leather, roasted nuts, plum and wood smoke bring a complexity that seduces. Medium-bodied and in the lineage of '96

(3-2000) (In 1995 and 1997) my notes were identidal: deep ruby; curious marrons nose; powerful for a talked-down (not by Jaboulet) vintage. Next in 1998: deep, still youthful; cherry-like fruit, fully evolved; sweet, soft, excellent texture; maturing nicely. Jumping a couple of years to a jeroboam at a French wine dinner in Hamburg: complete, no harsh edges, a copybook Hermitage.

(01-2006) Healthy but very shaded briary crimson. Some real Hermitage perfume. Then sweet fruit on the front palate – truly a hint of majesty. Dusty, dry, very fine tannins. Briary, this wine still has a way to go but has real fruit intensity – though it could do with a little more. Quite fresh. Medium length.

(03-2009) Tasted at The Ledbury for lunch. A consistent note, a thrilling La Chapelle unfairly over-shadowed by the 1990. Do not overlook it, here demonstrating a reticent bouquet at first, but unfurling with time with liquorices, blackberry, game, singed leather and spices. Wonderful definition – a nose that takes you straight to the famous hill. The palate is full-bodied with exquisite balance, notes of fennel, game, black fruits and leather, with a dash of white pepper towards the finish. Great backbone here – this ’91 is in for the long-term. Drink now-2030.
