Made from microscopic yields of 6 hectoliters per hectare the profound 2003 Crozes-Hermitage Raymond Roure is an atypically powerful Crozes that tips the scales at 15% alcohol. Aged completely in neutral wood it displays superb intensity along with a huge bouquet of black truffles asphalt creme de cassis blackberries white flowers and black tea. One of the greatest Crozes-Hermitages ever made this full-bodied blockbuster is a potential legend. It will drink well for 15-20 years. Importer: Frederick Wildman New York NY; tel. (212) 355-0700

This gushes with chocolate-covered cherry plum and blackberry fruit but never gets jammy thanks to racy acidity and plenty of tobacco iron and tar flavors. Long vibrant finish. Drink now through 2015. 700 cases made... This gushes with chocolate-covered cherry plum and blackberry fruit but never gets jammy thanks to racy acidity and plenty of tobacco iron and tar flavors.

Jaboulet Aine, Paul

For almost two centuries, the Jaboulet family has shared a common passion for the Rhone Valley, its history, its terroir, its exceptional people and wines.

In 1834, Antoine Jaboulet started working the land on the hills of Hermitage. Through his hard work and passion, he was able to produce a wine of exceptional quality. The business was passed on to his sons Henri and Paul, with the latter later giving his name to the company.

Since then, the generations have continued to succeed one another until in January 2006, the Frey family, longstanding winemakers in Champagne and owners of Chateau La Lagune in Bordeaux, acquired Maison Paul Jaboulet Aine thus adding to its portfolio of prestigious names.

The company’s hundred or so hectares of vineyards are tended with the greatest possible care. The wide diversity of terroirs and the influence of micro-climates favor the production of Syrah, the principal variety and the sole red grape, while Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier are used for the white wines.

Jaboulet wines represent generations of hard work and a passion for excellence and these values are adhered to by an unswerving commitment to improving vineyards, and through strategic acquisitions and work in the cellars, while respecting the environment at the same time.
