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.

The 2014 Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes Hermitage Raymond Roure is a captivating red wine from the Rhone region of France. With its deep red color and enticing aromas, this wine is a true delight for the senses.

On the nose, this wine exudes the scents of granitic, dusty, and stony soil, creating a unique and intriguing olfactory experience. These earthy notes are complemented by a heart of boysenberry and raspberry fruit, as well as hints of riper red plums. The combination of these aromas creates a complex and alluring bouquet.

Upon tasting, the palate is greeted with assertive ripe tannins that provide structure and depth. The wine also showcases flavors of coal smoke and red fruits, adding layers of complexity. As the wine lingers on the palate, it finishes with notes of dark spices and graphite, leaving a lasting impression.

This Crozes Hermitage is a wine that truly embodies the terroir of the Northern Rhone. Its brooding character and bold flavors make it a perfect companion for hearty dishes and rich cheeses. With a moderate alcohol percentage of 13.0%, this wine is well-balanced and harmonious.

Renowned wine critic James Suckling awarded this wine an impressive score of 90 points. In his tasting note, he highlights the wine's ripe tannins, smoky undertones, and red fruit flavors. Suckling recommends enjoying this wine now, but also notes its aging potential until 2022.

The 2014 Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes Hermitage Raymond Roure is a wine that showcases the best of the Rhone region. With its complex aromas, bold flavors, and elegant finish, it is sure to impress even the most discerning wine enthusiasts.
