Paul Jaboulet Aîné ‘La Maison Bleue’ is a new addition to our list – and is a 100% Syrah from Hermitage in the Northern Rhone. This super dry red wine is big and concentrated, with plenty of black fruits and ripe tannins. Velvety and intense with violets, olives and spice to give complexity to the fruit. From the eastern part of the hill where deeper soils and slightly younger vines give a full, round style of wine.
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.
