Gentle toasted grain scents waft from the glass, along with notes of marshmallow and melon. It's full-bodied and richly textured, with notes of pineapple, crème brûlée and citrus on the long finish.- JC

It offers a fresh, vibrant, slightly exotic style in its white flowers, lime blossom, and white peach aromas and flavors. Fresh, vibrant and pure, with a touch of Sauvignon character, it’s nevertheless beautifully concentrated, deep, and layered.

Ripe orchard and pit fruits on the mineral-tinged nose, along with an orange pith nuance that adds lift and focus. Concentrated, focused and gently sweet, offering juicy white peach, pear and honeysuckle flavors that become spicier as the wine opens up. A spicy quality emerges slowly on the sharply focused, tenacious finish, which echoes the mineral and floral notes. -- Josh Raynolds

Some mealy, savory, almond and grassy elements here. The palate has a grassy array of lemons and candied melon. Gently grippy, pastry-like finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.

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.
