Paul Jaboulet Aîné

About Paul Jaboulet Aîné

Undoubtedly one of the greatest names in the Rhône Valley, Paul Jaboulet Aîné was founded in 1834 by Antoine Jaboulet and is perhaps best known for its flagship La Chapelle, of which the 1961 vintage still holds the title as one of the greatest wines ever made. A series of mishaps in the 1990s threw the estate in disarray and it took the financial might of the Frey family to set the estate on a path to recovery.

Since 2006, the Frey family have accomplished an impressive feat at Paul Jaboulet Aine by taking this historic estate to its rightful place as the first growth of the Rhone. With their experience at Chateau La Lagune in Bordeaux, the Frey family saw the potential in Jaboulet’s vineyards, including the important and iconic vineyard, Hermitage La Chapelle.

Caroline Frey has since taken over as owner and winemaker of Paul Jaboulet Aîné and within 10 years, enabled Paul Jaboulet Aîné to attain organic certification.

Paul Jaboulet Aine Cornas Saint Pierre 2012 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (90-93+)

The 2012 Cornas Domaine de Saint Pierre comes from a plot of vines, located at the top of the appellation (higher elevation means cooler temperatures), that was purchased in 1996. Harvested very late and inky purple to the rim, it gives up wild, gamey notes of olive, green herbs, plum and liquid violets, as well as edgy minerality, on the nose. Medium-bodied, rich and beautifully textured, with surprising elegance, it shows how successful this appellation was in 2012. Possessing ample tannin on the finish, give it another year or three in the cellar once released and enjoy it over the following decade.

Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2009 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

It will be thrilling to follow the 2009 and 2010 la Chapelles over the coming 40-50 years. Much more sexy, voluptuous and layered than the 2010, the 2009 Hermitage la Chapelle offers sensational levels of extract and concentration to go with notes of cassis, black raspberries, coffee bean, toasted bread and sweet spice. Beautifully pure, layered, and yet massively endowed, with sweet tannin, it will be drinkable at an earlier age than the 2010, but I suspect will be just as long lived. It's a true tour de force in Hermitage!
