    Cuvée presentation

    From the labour-intensive Cornas terroir, Jaboulet produces a powerful wine which delivers subtle aromas of spices and black berries. The barrique barrel élevage process does not mask the original identity of the wine; rather, it helps to refine the distinguished tannins. It has the potential for 5 to 10 years' cellaring.

    Information about domain Paul Jaboulet Aîné

    Antoine Jaboulet set up his winemaking business Tain-l'Hermitage in 1834. He was succeeded by his sons, Paul and Henri who in turn passed the baton to Paul’s son Louis. Next came Louis’s son Gérard and then, in 1997, Gérard’s cousin, Michel Jaboulet. He ran the domain until 2006 when it was bought by the Frey Group which also owns vineyards in Champagne and Bordeaux (Château la Lagune). Today, oenologist Caroline Frey runs the property which has worked steadily to achieve an excellent standard. In 2013, Maison Jaboulet officially converted its vineyards to organic and in 2015 it received “High Environmental Value” certification. Beyond these accreditations though, the domain’s goal of bringing out the best in each majestic Rhône terroir remains unchanged. It achieves this goal by preserving the quality of the fruit, through meticulous vinification, and an attentive élevage.
