The balance and richness of a Crozes-Hermitage red wine

The estate

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.

The vineyard

The oldest estate in the appellation, Domaine de Thalabert has been owned by Paul Jaboulet Aîné since 1834. Its 45-hectare vineyard is located on the low terraces of the Rhône. Planted on a stony soil of limestone origin, the 40 to 60-year-old vines produce fine Crozes-Hermitage wines.

The vintage

A mild winter, favouring an early budding of the vines, preceded a warm spring with regular rainfall. The flowering period was uniform and qualitative. July was hot and dry. The harvest took place under very good conditions and enabled the teams to harvest utterly healthy grapes.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted in the vineyard. Vatting for around 4 weeks with gentle extractions. The wine is aged in French oak barrels, 15% of which are new.

The blend

Syrah (100%).

Cellaring

This Crozes-Hermitage wine can be cellared until 2040.
