With a classic vintage profile, this refined, complex, and vibrant red wine has notes of black fruit, tart cherry, and violets.

La Chapelle Hermitage Rouge is made from 40- to 100-year-old Syrah vines grown in the western Hermitage on steep slopes using goblet on stakes training. The Les Bessards and Varogne parcels have granite soil, and bedrock is exposed in several places due to erosion over the past 400 million years. Syrah grown in this soil is dense and graphite-like with tight tannins and silky texture. The highest terraces of the Méal and Rocoules parcels are pebbled with limestone, and Syrah grown there has a fleshy and sensual texture with aromas of ink and black fruit. 

Incredibly deep and complex nose for the 2021 vintage with masses of forest berry, licorice and autumn trumpet mushroom aromas, with an enormous tannin structure that's very refined. The classic power of Hermitage comes through at the extremely long finish. Although the tannins are anything but aggressive, the aromas will need considerable time to fully unfurl. From parcels on the western side of the Hermitage hill with predominantly granite soils, the largest parcel being in Le Meal. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2026. - 96 Points James Suckling
