- ABV 14%
- Closure: Cork
A new cuvée that’s replacing the Petit Chapelle, the 2015 Hermitage La Maison Bleue comes from grapes on the eastern side of the appellation, which is more limestone, clay, and sedimentary soils. Brought up in 20% new oak (which is the same for all the reds), it offers a rich, opulent, incredibly sexy style as well as full-bodied notes of black raspberry, blackberry jam, toasted bread, and spice. With tons of sweet fruit, no hard edges, and a great finish, it’s a much more in your face, pedal-to-the-metal effort compared to the more structured La Chapelle.
(raised in 20% new oak): Opaque ruby. Powerful smoke- and spice-accented aromas of ripe blueberry, olive and violet are lifted by a zesty mineral overtone. Deeply concentrated yet lively, showing impressive focus and energy to its black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors, which pick up an Indian spice accent as the wine opens up. Deftly marries power and finesse and finishes extremely long and sweet, with repeating dark berry character and youthful tannins that sneak in late. Note that this wine was called La Petite Chapelle through the 2014 vintage.
Josh Raynolds - Vinous
Replacing La Petite Chapelle in the Jaboulet lineup is the 2015 Hermitage La Maison Bleue. Rather than being a selection of lots that didn’t make the cut for La Chapelle, it’s more terroir-based, with the wine coming from the eastern (non-granitic) side of the appellation. Because of that, it’s softer in style, with a rich, velvety texture. Cedar and spice notes frame cassis and cola notes, lingering through the long, supple finish.
Joe Czerwinski - Wine Advocate #234 (Dec 2017)
A striking, exotic nose with red stone fruits and extremely expressive berries as well as darker cherries and plums, and plenty of dark stony notes, too. The palate is super plush, expansive and deeply structured. Velvety, deep and supple, and packed with red and dark cherries and plums. Dense, velvety tannins. Super expressive and long with a stony finish. Drink from 2020 and beyond.
