Paul Jaboulet Aîné Domaine Mule Blanche is an equal split of Marsanne and Roussanne and the grapes comes from the pebbly alluvial soils which sit on top of clay and limestone on the lower terraces of the Crozes Hermitage appellation. With vines aged between 40 and 60 years old, they produce a white wine with concentration with plenty of flavour. It is salty and peachy, with a long, balanced finish. A lovely French white wine indeed.
One of the most iconic names in the world of wine. The original Jaboulet business was set up in 1834, when Antoine Jaboulet opened in Tain l’Hermitage – and purchased his first vineyards on the classic Hermitage slopes and the Crozes Hermitage plains. Since then, much has changed, most notably in recent history when the Frey family, who own Chateau La Lagune in Bordeaux, took over Paul Jaboulet Aine in 2006. The wines have had a noticeable lift in quality – and we are pleased to list a range of their stunning red wines and white wines from all over the great Rhone Valley, including Cote Rotie, Condrieu, Hermitage and Crozes Hermitage. All estates are now certified organic and the team broadly follow biodynamic principles.
