Hints of cracked pepper and cured meat accent raspberries and cherries in this medium-bodied, silky offering that's ready to drink now, yet it should last for at least a decade.- JC

Brought up all in demi-muids (they started doing 100% demi-muids in 2015), the 2016 Côte Rôtie Les Pierrelles offers a fresh, vibrant, downright pretty style in its black raspberries, crushed rocks, violets, and floral...   Brought up all in demi-muids (they started doing 100% demi-muids in 2015), the 2016 Côte Rôtie Les Pierrelles offers a fresh, vibrant, downright pretty style in its black raspberries, crushed rocks, violets, and floral aromas and flavors. It has medium-bodied richness, plenty of underlying grip, beautiful tension, and outstanding length. It shows the fresher, more elegant and classic style of the vintage nicely.

Sleek and slightly taut in feel, with a light cedar edge running amid the black currant and bitter plum fruit. Light tobacco and olive notes check in on the finish, adding nice typicity, but this stays a bit taciturn...   Sleek and slightly taut in feel, with a light cedar edge running amid the black currant and bitter plum fruit. Light tobacco and olive notes check in on the finish, adding nice typicity, but this stays a bit taciturn overall. Drink now through 2030. 75 cases made, 25 cases imported. — JM

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.
