Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné, an iconic name of fine 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. The Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné watches over 125 hectares of vines, spread over exceptional appellations such as Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.
The oldest estate in the appellation, Domaine de Thalabert has been owned by Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné since 1834. Its 45-hectare vineyard is located on the low terraces of the Rhône river. The vines, between 40 and 60 years old, are grown on stony limestone soil, made up of pebbles that store heat during the day and release it at night.
This 2018 Domaine de Thalabert by Paul Jaboulet-Aîné is a 100% Syrah.
