Tasting Notes:

From a vintage that wasn't memorable in northern Rhône. Drought conditions in the summer may explain the tough, rustic tannins. It's hard to cozy up to this red, but it shows characteristic mineral, leather and black fruit. May soften with time.--La Chapelle vertical. Drink now through 2005.

Tasting Notes:

The 1982 is a wonderful surprise. It has always been delicious It has put on weight yet retains its exotic, over-the-top style. Fully mature, but capable of lasting another decade or more, the 1982 La Chapelle possesses a dark garnet color with an amber edge. The glorious nose of Asian spices, roasted espresso, creamy cassis fruit, and hints of Peking duck lathered with hoisin sauce gives this wine, with its notes of prunes, plums, and cassis, an exotic yet compelling allure. Among all the vintages of the eighties and nineties, the 1982 is my favorite for current drinking. Sumptuous and full-bodied, with a creamy texture and sweet tannin, it is a dazzling La Chapelle for consuming over the next decade.
