Jaboulet Cotes du Rhone Rose Parallele 45 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"The honeyed style of wine seems to have worked well with the 2005 Hermitage Chevalier de Sterimberg. Light gold-colored with notes of white peach intermixed with flowers, marzipan, and hazelnut, it is medium to full-bodied, relatively dense, and very good, but hardly a profound example of white Hermitage..."-- The Wine Advocate<br/><br/>

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

Great Balance. One of the easiest red wines to get along with. Serves with just about everything without striving to outdo anything.

($60) Has a mix of candied citrus peel, floral, lanolin and fig flavors, with a nicely firm finish. Long and tight, with the citrus and floral notes holding the fruit at bay for now. Needs time to unwind. Best from 2008 through 2013. 25 cases importe... Wine Spectator. A Marsanne wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage Chevalier de Sterimberg 750ml

The 2005 Crozes-Hermitage Raymond Roure blanc exhibits more character than the La Mule, with acacia flowers intermixed with some honeysuckle, citrus oils, and minerals. It is medium to full-bodied, riper, and more powerful.

($216) Very juicy, with nice drive to the black currant and boysenberry fruit, which is pushed by dark plum sauce, black licorice and sweet toast notes. The long, fleshy finish shows the polished grip of the vintage. Best from 2010 through 2022. 400 ... Wine Spectator.

Very pure, with round melon, anise, butter and almond notes, followed by a pleasant hint of peach pit on the well-defined finish. Drink now.
