Limpid ruby. Perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, peppery spices and potpourri, complicated by a woodsmoke nuance. Silky, expansive and gently sweet, offering concentrated raspberry liqueur and lavender pastille flavors and an allspice quality that builds on the back half. Finishes sweet, sappy and persistent, with firming fine-grained tannins adding grip.
Dark Ruby Red
Powerful and fleshy, this wine reveals intense aromas of red berries such as raspberry and blackcurrant with hints of toasty spice.
It has a concentrated texture that exudes a rare type of elegance.
Since the early 19th century, the name Paul Jaboulet Aîné has been synonymous with quality in the Rhône. Today, there is a renewed sense of energy and purpose. In early 2006, the Frey family bought Jaboulet and implemented sweeping changes to return Jaboulet to the summit of quality Rhône producers.
Impressive holdings are among the largest in the Rhône, spanning nearly all great appellations: Condrieu, Cornas, Côte-Rôtie, St. Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage and Hermitage. Recent purchases include Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Crozes Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie vineyards.
Winemaking stresses severe selection, dramatically lower yields, long and steady fermentations and aging in newer barrels. The wines are rich and dense, with remarkable balance and finesse: Rhône grapes in full song.
Most wines are enjoyable upon release, while wines like Hermitage “La Chapelle” and Côte Rôtie “Les Jumelles” reward patience.
