Much darker and much bluer than the Chave. Extraordinarily youthful colour for such an old wine. Quite different from any 1990 red bordeaux I have seen recently. Hardly any sediment. Less dusty and concentrated than the Sizeranne and Chave 1990s. Sleeker. Solid and definitely Hermitage but not ethereal. Velvety 1990 texture and lots of richness. Quite evolved. A good blend of Hermitage rigour with definite polish. The most evolved of the four 1990 Hermitages tasted: Sorrel, Chapoutier Sizeranne, Chave and this.

The 1990 La Chapelle is the sexy and opulent. I had the 1990 at the Jaboulet tasting, and again out of a double magnum three months ago. On both occasions it was spectacular, clearly meriting a three-digit score. The modern day equivalent of the 1961, it deserves all the attention it has garnered. The color remains an opaque purple, with only a slight pink at the edge. Spectacular aromatics offer up aromas of incense, smoke, blackberry fruit, cassis, barbecue spice, coffee, and a touch of chocolate. As it sits in the glass, additional nuances of pepper and grilled steak emerge. There is extraordinary freshness for such a mammoth wine in addition to abundant tannin, an amazing 60-second finish, and a level of glycerin and thick, fleshy texture that have to be tasted to be believed. Despite its youthfulness, the 1990 La Chapelle is lovely to drink, although it will be even better with another 5-6 years of cellaring; it should age for 35-40+ years.

As expected from this ideal vintage, this '90 is sensational. Inky in color and solidly anchored in its terroir, it springs to life with a symphony of flavors, from mineral to wet earth and blackberry. Marvelous balance among fruit, acidity and smooth tannins. Delicious now, but can hold.--La Chapelle vertical. 9,400 cases made.

Wow: Dark purple. Nose of violet and cassis. Ripe Red fruit on the palate with a hint of Asian spices. Silky tannins. Incredibly well balanced with a 60 second finish. Very accessible now but it has another 20 years of life ahead.

Incredibly massive nose of dark fruits, leather spice and more. Dark purple, Somehow smooth as silk but with strong tannins and a never ending complexity of earth, fruit and coffee and smoke. I doubt that Northern Rhone gets any better than this. Will drink beyond my lifetime

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
