Description

JabouletDomaine Thalabert Paul Jaboulet Aine is one of the finest wines in the Crozes Hermitage AOC. The Domaine dates back to 1834 and, cementing the ancient links between Bordeaux and the Rhone, is actually owned by the Frey family of 3rd Growth Grand Cru Classe Chateau La Lagune in the Haut Medoc. Paul Jaboulet Aine’s holdings in the Rhone are seriously impressive and they produce some of the greatest wines in the world.

The Domaine sits in the shadows of the steep granite hill of Hermitage on a rolling, pebbly plain formed by an ancient glacier. These small pebbles store heat during the day and release it at night, providing the optimum conditions for ripening grapes to mature. The wines of Crozes Hermitage tend to be lighter in style than the powerful and concentrated wines of Hermitage itself and are known for their perfumed aromas.paul jaboulet

Often described as Crozes Hermitage’s most famous wine Domaine de Thalabert has always been a wine that ages brilliantly and the 2000 vintage offers sumptuous drinking. Stunning with wild boar sausages and winter casseroles, Domaine Thalabert Paul Jaboulet Aine is lovely with French Cassoulet made with white haricot beans. It also marries well with roast lamb with rosemary, guinea fowl, pheasant, goose, duck and beef as well as pan fried tuna steaks, salmon and sharp cheese.
