2019 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc, 'Domaine de Roure', Paul Jaboulet Aîné
Domaine de Roure was bought by the Jaboulet family in 1966. It is just north of Tain l’Hermitage, and the small valley here is also home to much wildlife. In fact, the Frey family established a biodiversity refuge, so fantastic is the ecological habitat. This white is made exclusively from Marsanne grapes grown on the white loess soils found here. The average vine age spans 60 to 100 years, and the 2019 shows plenty of the saline concentration you would expect, with some charming apricot and almond notes, and bright minerality underneath.
