75cl * 13.5% ABV * Northern Rhone, France
Jaboulet’s La Chapelle Hermitage is one of the world’s most soughtafter and expensive wines in all the Rhône, however the house’s lesserknown bottlings always manage to provide an affordable glimpse of that same greatness. The Thalabert vineyards were the first purchased by the founding family and are among the oldest in the appellation. Fullflavoured, gamey Syrah like this loves smoked bacon. Drink to 2028.
