For those lucky few fortunate enough to experience a barrel sample, all signs are pointing to another historic bottle. There is a reason why this wine fetches this price.
"If you love Rhone wines, this one really shouldn't be missed." Josh Reynolds, Vinous The industry excitement is overwhelming. The 2015 Rhone reds - like many 2015 wines throughout Europe - are truly iconic and potentially legendary. The finest producers are making wines that are off the charts. "This is a flawless Hermitage." James Suckling
"Explosive, mineral-accented scents of ripe dark berries, licorice, incense, vanilla and exotic spices, with a smoky nuance in the background. Deeply concentrated yet strikingly lively and precise on the palate, offering intense, finely detailed black and blue fruit, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that are complemented by hints of olive, allspice and star anise. Offers an uncanny blend of richness and finesse, with no rough edges... This is one of the finest examples of young La Chapelle that I have ever tasted from barrel, and that includes the legendary 1989, 1990 and 1991 trio. " Josh Reynolds, Vinous
