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.
About the cuvée
Acquired in 1996 by Jaboulet, the Raymond Roure domain is located in the commune of Gervans, a few kilometres north of Tain l'Hermitage. Here, the Marsanne grape is used exclusively for vinifying the white wine. The vines are an average of 60 years old. The wine is matured for 12 months in oak barrels, with 30% new barrels used. On the nose, the wine has aromas of white flowers, while in the mouth, it offers an attractive power with a long, harmonious finish.
