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 Le Chevalier de Sterimberg Blanc 2011 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

Starting off the 2011 whites, all of which were in bottle, the 2011 Hermitage Chevalier de Sterimberg (70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne) offers up gorgeous honeyed fruits, creme, lemon, buttered citrus and distinct minerality in a medium to full-bodied, fresh, lively and pure package. Gaining richness and depth with air, with integrated acidity and additional nuttiness on the blockbuster finish, it’s a thrilling effort that will evolve for 15-20 years.
