Cotes du Rhone. "Parallele 45". Paul Jaboulet Aine 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit of mealy apple on the nose along with dried lemon zest and some nice almost lilac floral tones. Very smooth in the mouth and frankly soft, this is rich and mouth-filling but does lack any sense of definition. Some nice flavors of apple, orange and fennel fronds float around on the palate before disappearing on the short, slight fennel flavored finish. 80pts

The company’s hundred or so hectares of vineyards are tended with the greatest possible care. In the northern estates of the Côtes du Rhône, the wide diversity of terroirs and the influence of micro-climates favours the production of Syrah.

The company’s hundred or so hectares of vineyards are tended with the greatest possible care. In the northern estates of the Côtes du Rhône, the wide diversity of terroirs and the influence of micro-climates favours the production of Syrah. This is the principle variety, and the sole red grape, grown by Paul Jaboulet Aîné, while Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier are used for the white wines. This provides the wines of each appellation with a well-defined personality. Paul Jaboulet Aîné favours traditional vineyard husbandry. Yields are restricted to between 25 and 35 hectolitres per hectare from vines that are on average 40 years old, with the most illustrious being nearly 80 years old. Canopy management, crop thinning, pruning and harvesting are all carried out by hand. Ancestral methods such as the use of hand winches and stake training of vines are still used, all of which requires a skilled, experienced workforce. When they have reached optimal maturity, the grapes are hand-harvested into 20kg crates to keep them in as good condition as possible. The company is currently undergoing sustainable agriculture qualification, which restricts the use of herbicides in the soil, favours organic fertilisers to encourage the development of micro-organisms, and allows the vines to thrust their roots deep into the ground. The vines consequently benefit from the natural and varied nourishment of the soil. This background means that the Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné winemaking team must work tirelessly, using the ancestral methods of the past to move into the future. Read less

Fruity nose with lots going on in the palate! Classic stone fruits and honeydew melon, citrus zest and is that sesame I taste? A great sipper that would pair with sweet and tangy foods.

Appley and acidic, with maybe a hint of sour pineapple? Thicker mouthfeel and a little perfumey.

Nose is fruity and fairly hot. Great spicy feel, but with a bit of heat on the finish. Very strong tannins.

Fresh, with a supple core of black cherry and plum fruit backed by hints of anise and tobacco. Drink now.

One of my favorites that we carry. It opens with delicious dark fruit flavors with a hint of licorice, and has supple tannins. The finish is lingering with a touch of spice. This wine would complement a variety of dishes from barbecued ribs to grilled vegetables. I recommend enjoying it with a homemade pizza topped with grilled chicken, caramelized onions and mushrooms.
