Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 100
Opaque plum/garnet-colored, with a fabulously sweet, youthful bouquet of licorice, incense, smoked meats, pepper, and blackberry/cassis fruit, the full-bodied 1978 La Chapelle is extremely young with astonishing vigor, velvety tannin, and a full-bodied, multi-dimensional, layered personality. The finish lasts for over 60 seconds. Remarkably fresh and not yet fully mature, the super-concentrated 1978 should continue to age well for another three decades. Anticipated maturity: now-2030.-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 99
A famous vintage for Hermitage. Greatness in a glass of wine. A deeply colored, thick yet elegant blockbuster, this 21-year-old red shows no sign of getting old. Instead, it has reached that seamless level of balance--ripe fruit, clean acidity, smooth tannins. So sit back for a vinous ride through exciting mineral, plum, blackberry, cassis, horse stable and roasted nut loops.--La Chapelle vertical. Drink now through 2020.-PM
