1996 PJA Hermitage Chapelle

17th Apr 1999 Rhone Table Red

[Tasted Blind]
Opaque purple/red with a pink/purple rim - viscous from a recent, decent vintage.
Quite tight and stalky on the nose with a solid core of mulberry and plum fruit.
Full bodied with sweet cassis and plum fruit, firm tannins, warm rich acidity and peppery oak on the long, concentrated finish. Needs 5 to 6 years.
