New Release: Paul Jaboulet Aine
15 March 2018

Since the Frey family bought Jaboulet in 2006, they have breathed new life into this once great domaine. It is hardly a secret that the estate had somewhat fallen from grace by the last years of the sixth generation of Jaboulet ownership. The heydays of the `61 and `78 were just faded memories, lamented by those lucky enough to still own and drink them… The Freys went straight to work in the vineyards, ploughing, adopting organic farming practices, and since 2016 are certified biodynamic. Their efforts are beginning to pay dividends. The 2015s were released to critical acclaim and the 2016s, which we tasted yesterday, are another step in the right direction.

2016 is a small but very successful crop for Jaboulet. The wines have polish and precision, a sweetness of fruit and caressing texture that is most alluring. A fleshiness and generosity makes these immediately charming, however, there is an underlying power and concentration that hints towards bright and long futures. The flagship Hermitage La Chapelle received 95-97 points from both Jeb Dunnuck and the Wine Advocate’s Joe Czerwinski. This is a wine of tremendous intensity and authority, wrapped in sensual Syrah fruit.    Read More
