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
This Syrah cuvée comes from a blend of three soils: l’Ermite, Le Sabot and the prestigious terroir of les Bessards. As for all the wines of the Maison, Marquise de la Tourette benefits from careful care and attention: harvested by hand, terroir by terroir, prolonged barrel ageing (14 to 16 months) on wood from one to three years. This prevents marking the wine too much in its early years. This cuvée offers up powerful and intense aromas of ripe black fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry), blended with subtle hints of spices and vanilla. The palate, firm but unctuous, even creamy, reveals notes of truffle and pleasant minerality.
