Sur le terroir de Côte-Rôtie, la maison Jaboulet réserve pour ses syrahs un élevage tout en finesse. Une garde d'une dizaine d'années sera plus qu'appréciable. More info
In its two hectares of Côte Brune and Côte Blonde vineyards, Maison Paul Jaboulet Ainé produces a refined, delicate Côte-Rôtie. The Syrah grape takes advantage the specific character of these two parcels: one composed of silica and limestone (the Côte Blonde), the other clay and iron oxide (the Côte Brune). The wine is matured for 12 months in oak barrels, with 20% new barrels used. The bouquet is floral, offering notes of red berries or even violet. On the palate, the finish is long, beautiful and harmonious.
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.
