Ermitage Domaine Philippe et Vincent Jaboulet 2012

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £21.50 from the www.bidforwine.co.uk website.Hermitage is an appellation created in 1937,although viticulture here goes back centuries,for red and white wines from the slopes of a hill by the town of Tain on the east bank of the Rhone river about 40 miles south of Lyon.It is a very prestigious appellation having once been favoured by Louis IV and the Russian tsars and takes its name from a chapel ot hermitage at the top of the hill built by a crusader knight called Caspar de Sterimberg.My bottle comes from Domaine Philippe and Vincent Jaboulet who prefer the original spelling of Ermitage without the initial 'H' and consists of 100% syrah from 40 year old vines on a half hectare plot on the hill of Tain. I started my bottle last night with my supper of beef stew.The wine was a very dark colour,was full bodied and had lots of a blackcurrant style fruit so intense it was almost like licorice with a hint of pepper or spice and some soft tannins although there was plenty of structure. In short this was a lovely bottle of wine
