// Very old Syrah vines; 40 to 100 years.

"La Chapelle comes from the blending of the greatest Western terroirs of the Hermitage. The Roucoules terroir, as well as the gene- rous side of the Méal and Les Greffieux, are complemented by the Bessards deepness and Varogne freshness. Hand-picked, sorting on the plot, in small crates. The vatting period lasts around 4 weeks with gentle extractions. Aged in concrete eggs (18%) and French oak barrels (15% new)." - Winemaker Notes

"While there are faint roasted coffee bean notes here, which hint at the warm summer, and exotic rose and musk characters that only ever emerge in concen- trated vintages, this is a masterclass in restraint and self-awareness. While this 2020 perhaps lacks the overall gravitas and high-rise tannins of the majestic 2019 vintage, this is a very seductive La Chapelle and one that will appeal to lovers of textural, velvety Syrahs. I am certain that everyone who drinks this wine will fall for its charms." - 19+ out of 20 Points, Matthew Jukes
