Le Che­va­lier de Ster­im­berg

Dream and Dine - - Wine -

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.
