Wow! This is the first time I can recall being blown away by this selection, which is creamy and rich without any sensation of heaviness. I'm looking forward to trying this again next year from bottle to see if it lives up to this promise.-JC

The palate has such long, fine tannins. Very sleek, attractive and deep, this offers so much already, but will be best from 2025.

Expansive, mineral- and spice-accented black and blue fruit aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a suave floral note with air. Shows impressive depth as well as energy to the sweet black raspberry, boysenberry and candied violet flavors, which become spicier on the back half. The floral and mineral notes drive a very long, juicy finish framed by smooth tannins. From a 1.9-hectare parcel in Tupin-et-Semons. -- Josh Raynolds

Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it’s elegant, has fine tannins, and is an outstanding wine. Drink it over the coming 10-12 years.

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.
