Food Pairings for Jaboulet Muscat de Beaumes de Venise le Chant des Griolles
Legendary Rhône producer, Paul Jaboulet, was bought by the Frey family in January 2006 and is now undergoing a quality renaissance. The Frey family, owners of Chateau La Lagune (and previously owners of Ayala Champagne), have a history of investing in quality and are determined to restore the Jaboulet wines to their former glory. M. Frey hired a new general manager, a new vineyard manager and a new winemaker soon after taking control of Jaboulet, and brought in Denis Dubourdieu (owner of Chateau Reynon, and consultant to La Lagune) to help bring quality back to its previously high level. Pliny the Elder refered to this wine in his “Natural History”, but it was not until the 17th century that it was to become famous through the importation of the muscat grape variety, from which the Vin Doux Naturel is made (AOC since 1945). The wine is a clear golden colour with attractive brightness. White peach, quince and exotic fruit aromas. Final note of honey and candied fruit. Ample, fresh attack with final warm rich notes of candied fruit.
