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.

The 2019 Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage Maison Bleue is an exceptional red wine hailing from the prestigious Hermitage appellation in the Northern Rhone region of France. Crafted from the Syrah grape, this wine embodies the essence of the terroir and showcases the artistry of the renowned producer, Paul Jaboulet Aine.

In the glass, this wine exhibits a deep, inky red color that hints at its richness and intensity. The nose is immediately captivated by a captivating bouquet of cloves, dried flowers, raspberries, and blackberries. Subtle nuances of black truffle add an intriguing earthy element to the aromatic profile.

On the palate, the 2019 Hermitage Maison Bleue delivers a full-bodied experience that is both powerful and refined. Layers of flavors unfold, with baked chocolate-pie and dark fruit taking center stage. The wine's velvety texture caresses the palate, leaving a lasting impression. As the wine lingers, it reveals its warmth and generosity, making it a truly indulgent and satisfying experience.

Renowned wine critic James Suckling awarded this wine an impressive score of 93 points, noting its big, juicy profile and suggesting it will benefit from a few years of cellaring before reaching its full potential. Jeb Dunnuck also praised this wine, commending its ripe black fruits, fine elegance, and recommending a few years of bottle age to allow it to evolve further.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded this wine an outstanding score of 95 points, describing it as a superb Maison Bleue. The review highlights the seamless blend of cherries and cassis, the rich and velvety texture, and the complex and savory finish. The wine is deemed approachable already but has the potential to age gracefully until 2040.

Vinous also awarded this wine an impressive score of 95 points, noting its inky violet color, heady aromas of smoke, spice, cherry, and blueberry, and its energetic and strikingly long finish. The review praises the wine's energy and the well-integrated tannins.

Overall, the 2019 Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage Maison Bleue is a wine of immense quality and sophistication. It embodies the character of its terroir and showcases the expertise of its producer. This is a wine that will undoubtedly captivate the senses and reward those who have the patience to cellar it for a few years.
