Le Chevalier de Sterimberg
Grapes are brought down from the slopes of l'hermitage on small sledges, after which they are sorted by hand and vinified traditionally in the wineries. Final blending is carried out during the ageing process and is done through judicious selection from the different terroirs of l'hermitage.
La Chapelle is aged in wood in the ancient “VINEUM” cellar for 15 to 18 months. During this process the wines are also racked, resulting in a wine that is of intense ruby red, limpid and bright colours coupled with highly complex, distinguishing aromas, revealing the Syrah's great finesse.
In addition, notes of black fruits, sweet spices are also present, and, ultimately, it is finely woody. To the palate, La Chapelle is both full and generous, with silky tannins and a very long finish.
