The flagship of our company (21 hectares of different climates) coming from the Saint Christophe chapel situated at the top of the Hermitage hill and constructed in 1235 by the knight Gaspard de Stérimberg. The Chapel of the Hermitage was bought by Paul Jaboulet Ainé in 1919 and it remains the company’s property. L’Hermitage « La Chapelle » is considered to be one of the best wines in the world. It is made solely from the Syrah grape variety, the vines have an avaerage age of 40 years. The hill faces south on an axis south east, which is exceptional. Not one ray of sunshine escapes the vineyard and it is sheltered from cold winds. The soil is composed of granite sand covered with micaschist and gneiss but there are also areas of round alluvial stones. Our vineyards are spread over different « terroirs » : Meal, Bessard which give to our wine a mixture of complexity and finesse. The ageing (15 months in oak casks) gives the inimitable « La Chapelle », a vintage of around 80,000 bottles.
