It just doesn’t get any better than this. Random wednesday night with a wonderful dinner of seared duck breast. This La Chapelle needed some air right after coming out of the bottle as the fruit kept becoming more plush and velvety as the wine aerated. Tremendously complex nose of earth, blackberry, tobacco, and camphor. On the palate, it is silky in texture and delivers some amazingly focused and precise blackberry and black currant fruit while also delivering the tell-tale La Chapelle pepperiness and roast meat juice. Finish goes on and on. My wife was equally impressed. I wish these were still available at the same prices I used to be able to get them for.
