Occupying one hundred hectares in the northern Côtes du Rhône, Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné have been producing wines since 1834.
Predominately Syrah, the La Chapelle vineyard, which is situated on the hillside of l’Hermitage, is the family’s flagship wine, l’Hermitage La Chapelle.
Yields are restricted to between 25 and 35 hectolitres per hectare from vines that are on average 40 years old, with the most illustrious being nearly 80 years old. Canopy management, crop thinning, pruning and harvesting are all carried out by hand.
Caroline Frey and Denis Dubourdieu, ensure that exceptional wines are produced. Combining traditional and modern methods, grapes are sorted by hand, de-stemmed and crushed. Pre-fermentation maceration takes place in vat. The wines are then blended and matured in 225-litre casks for between 12 and 24 months, depending on the vintage.
The Frey family, acquired Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné in January 2006.
