Another solid négociant effort, the 2017 Gigondas Pierre Aiguille combines hints of Mexican chocolate and red raspberries in a full-bodied, silky-textured wine. It's ripe yet chewy, with attractive hints of orange zest...   Another solid négociant effort, the 2017 Gigondas Pierre Aiguille combines hints of Mexican chocolate and red raspberries in a full-bodied, silky-textured wine. It's ripe yet chewy, with attractive hints of orange zest and licorice on the long finish. It's 80% Grenache, with 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah.- JC

Plummy cassis and black-cherry flavors are rich and rounded in this open-knit blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah sourced from stony red-clay terraces.

It's concentrated in fruit but seductively earthen too, offering hints of dusty mineral, smoke and peppery spice. The long finish is marked by ripe, fine-tipped tannins. At peak now–2027. ANNA LEE C.

Based largely on Grenache aged in French oak vats, its darker ruby color is followed by classic, old-school notes of blackberries, black cherries, ground herbs, and earthy aromas and flavors. With medium-bodied richness and depth, building tannins, and a solid frame, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will keep for upwards of a decade.

Deep, bright ruby. Spice-accented cherry, dark berries and pungent flowers on the nose. Supple and open-knit, offering juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of vanilla on the back half. Round, even tannins...   Deep, bright ruby. Spice-accented cherry, dark berries and pungent flowers on the nose. Supple and open-knit, offering juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of vanilla on the back half. Round, even tannins frame a long, smoky finish that leaves a subtly sweet cherry note behind. -- Josh Raynolds

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.
