The typicality of a Crozes-Hermitage wine
Paul Jaboulet-Aîné, the infamous reference among Northern Rhône Valley wines, was founded in 1834 in Tain L'Hermitage. The renowned oenologist and winemaker, Caroline Frey, has been running this illustrious house, owned by the Frey family, since 2006. Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné watches over 125 hectares of vines that spread over exceptional appellations such as Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.
Domaine de Roure by Paul Jaboulet-Aîné is a Crozes-Hermitage wine that stems from a 3.5-hectare terroir. The vines rest on granite slopes and enjoy a south/south-west sun exposure. This estate has been owned by Jaboulet-Aîné since 1996.
A mild winter, favouring an early budding of the vines, preceded a warm spring with regular rainfall. The flowering period was homogeneous and very good quality. July was hot and dry. The harvest took place under very good conditions and enabled the teams to harvest very healthy grapes.
Vinification and ageing
The hand-picked grapes are rigorously sorted in the vineyard. Vatting for around 4 weeks, along with gentle extractions. Aged in French oak barrels (15% new).
Paul Jaboulet-Aîné's Domaine de Roure 2020 is a 100% Syrah.
