2019 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc, Mule Blanche, Paul Jaboulet Aîné

This equal split of Marsanne and Roussanne comes from the pebbly alluvial soils which sit on top of clay and limestone on the lower terraces of the appellation. The vines are fairly old now, between 40 and 60 years, and produce a brilliant concentration with plenty of flavour. It is salty and peachy, with a long, balanced finish.

2019 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc, Mule Blanche, Paul Jaboulet Aîné
Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné

Jaboulet is one of the Rhône’s most famous names, and the house’s flagship wine, Hermitage La Chapelle, is an icon. Founded as a family concern in the early 19th century, it remained in family hands for nearly two hundred years, until it was sold to the Frey family, proprietors of Bordeaux Third Growth Château La Lagune and Champagne’s Billecart-Salmon. Caroline Frey now oversees the winemaking, and the estate has returned to the top table in Hermitage.
