About the Wine
Founded in 1834 on the hill of l’Hermitage in Tain l’Hermitage, the Paul Jaboulet Aîné house oversees an exceptional heritage that brings together the most famous terroirs of the northern Rhone valley and produces quintessential great wines.

   Under the leadership of Caroline Frey, precise vinification, combined with meticulous care given to the vines, makes it possible to produce tailor-made vintages which have been certified organic since 2016.


   Nestled in the heart of the Hermitage vineyard, one of the most famous vineyards in the world, stands this charming stone house, decorated with blue shutters. Rich in history, it is used today to dry plants used for biodynamic preparations, as well as for drying Hermitage straw wine. 

Soil geology

   Produced on the terroirs furthest east of the hill where the soils are deeper. Soils linked to the river terraces of the Rhône composed of limestone on colluvium.


   Optical and/or manual sorting. Traditional winemaking - 100% destemming. 3 weeks of maceration and daily pumping over. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (with a percentage of new wood varying depending on the vintage). Malolactic fermentation.

Grape variety

Syrah - planted between 1955 and 1994.

   Paul Jaboulet Aine Places the utmost importance on respecting the terroir and the vines. In the pursuit of the finest expression of wines and deeply committed to environmental preservation, the vineyards follow organic and biodynaic practices.

"Viticulture should complement nature, not confront it. We tailor our approach to each plot, embracing flexibility over a rigid stance. Our regenerative philosophy involves understanding the vine’s nature and connecting it to its environment."

Tasting Notes:

   With a classic vintage profile, this refined, complex, and vibrant red wine has notes of black fruit, tart cherry, and violets. La Chapelle Hermitage Rouge is made from 40- to 100-year-old Syrah vines grown in the western Hermitage on steep slopes using goblet on stakes training. The Les Bessards and Varogne parcels have granite soil, and bedrock is exposed in several places due to erosion over the past 400 million years. Syrah grown in this soil is dense and graphite-like with tight tannins and silky texture. The highest terraces of the Méal and Rocoules parcels are pebbled with limestone, and Syrah grown there has fleshy and sensual texture with aromas of ink and black fruit.
