Since the early 19th Century, Paul Jaboulet Ainé has been synonymous with quality wine in the Rhône Valley. Jaboulet’s Hermitages are the stuff of legend. The name Les Jalets comes from the soil nature of the vineyards, located in the plain of Les Chassis, stemming from the word jalets, is the Old French word for the pebbles left by alpine glaciers, as famously found at Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Average vine age is around 25 years.
We love a nice Crozes Hermitage. They show all the great flavours and personality from the Syrah, while remaining medium bodied and easy to drink. This one boasts delicious aromas of red berries with sweet spices on the finish. Subtle, elegant and well balanced, it is a very safe bet from a prestigious producer.
