Decanter,
A Marsanne / Roussanne blend that floats above the palate, tightly stitched but elegant; will age very well. Fleshy stone fruit and honeysuckle with clear minerality; rich and expressive but not straying out of the lines.

70% marsanne and 30% roussanne. This has an attractive lemon citrus and preserved lemon nose with dried flowers, too. Extremely pure.

There are two whites from Hermitage.

I always find a Burgundian slant in the Chevalier de Sterimberg cuvée, and the 2014 Hermitage Blanc Le Chevalier de Sterimberg offers tons of minerality in a backwards, tight, medium to full-bodied package that emphasizes finesse and purity. Flint, gunpowder, white peach and white flowers all emerge from the glass of this chiseled, rich and layered effort that can be drunk anytime over the coming decade or more.- JD

Wine Spectator, March 2016
Rich and well-focused, with creamed pear, yellow apple and melon flavors that glide along, carried by fresh butter, macadamia nut and honeysuckle notes. A flash of minerality through the finish adds length and detail...   Rich and well-focused, with creamed pear, yellow apple and melon flavors that glide along, carried by fresh butter, macadamia nut and honeysuckle notes.

Paul Jaboulet Aine

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.
