Description

This legendary wine was rated 100pts by Robert Parker every time he tasted it.

Jeb Dunnuck’s 2015 Wine Advocate tasting:

JEB DUNNUCK: 100 points

“As heavenly and profound as it gets, the still youthful-colored 1978 Hermitage la Chapelle exhibits an insane bouquet of sweet cassis, truffle, smoked meats and licorice. Full-bodied, multidimensional, decadent and massive on the palate, with a stacked mid-palate and still present, sweet tannin, it tastes like a mix of the more fruit-loaded ’90 and the more evolved, smoky and soy-laced ’61. You could easily run out of adjectives describing this beauty, but it’s a perfect wine any way you look at it. I see no reason to hold off, and it’s drinking perfectly for my palate today, but it certainly won’t fall off a cliff anytime soon. eRobertParker.com.September, 2015”
