Following on from our offer of the fantastic Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage Blanc Chevalier de Sterimberg 2018, we have something special from this powerhouse of the Rhône, a selection of La Chapelle back vintages in perfect ex-chateaux condition.
Founded in 1834 by Antoine Jaboulet, and with important holdings in both Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage, Jaboulet formed a network of hundreds of Rhône Valley growers from whom they purchased fruit. The estate continued under Antoine’s son Paul, taking his name. Until World War II, most of its wine was sold in cask, often to Bordeaux and Burgundy.
Under the legendary Louis Jaboulet, who ran the estate from 1935 until handing over to his son Gérard in 1977, Jaboulet began bottling more of their own wines, giving birth to great branded cuvées that Louis crafted through his relationships with some of the Rhône’s finest domaines.
The most iconic of Jaboulet’s wines, La Chapelle encapsulates all that is good from the Rhône Valley and cemented Jaboulet’s reputation as one of the region’s top producers. Named after a small stone chapel that sits among the vines, La Chapelle is created from the fruit grown in two of Hermitage’s greatest climats, Le Méal and Les Bessards.
We have secured a small number of La Chapelle back vintages directly from Jaboulet, in perfect ex-chateau condition:
