In 1834, a full 100 years before the introduction of the A.O.C. system, Antoine Jaboulet began to transform a sleepy region into one of the most important quality winegrowing terroirs in the world. Since that time, Paul Jaboulet Aîné has become the benchmark in the Northern Rhône, with the iconic Hermitage ‘La Chapelle’ being responsible for some of the greatest wines ever produced. 

Ten years ago, the Frey family purchased this historic property and committed tremendous effort and resources to improve upon the already legendary estate. They immediately started converting the estate vineyards to organic biodynamic principals and encouraging sustainable practices from every family grower they work with. With each successive vintage the purifying effects of these natural agricultural improvements can be felt and tasted. This is one of France’s finest estates, the crown jewel of the Rhône Valley. Oenologist and proprietor Caroline Frey, alongside Winemaking Director Jacques Desvernois, are producing the authentic standard for quality Syrah across the Northern Rhône.

Another solid négociant effort, the 2017 Gigondas Pierre Aiguille combines hints of Mexican chocolate and red raspberries in a full-bodied, silky-textured wine. It's ripe yet chewy, with attractive hints of orange zest and licorice on the long finish. It's 80% Grenache, with 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah.

Plummy cassis and black-cherry flavors are rich and rounded in this open-knit blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah sourced from stony red-clay terraces. It's concentrated in fruit but seductively earthen too, offering hints of dusty mineral, smoke and peppery spice. The long finish is marked by ripe, fine-tipped tannins. At peak now–2027.

Vinous

Supple and open-knit, offering juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of vanilla on the back half. Round, even tannins frame a long, smoky finish that leaves a subtly sweet cherry note behind.
