Le Petit Jaboulet Grenache Rosé Paul Jaboulet Ainé Paul Jaboulet Ainé França Rhône Rosado 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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. In order to do this, much of the old oak in the cellars was thrown out and almost 25,000 cases worth of wine was sold off in bulk as it wasn’t good enough to go into the revamped Jaboulet blends. In addition, about 72,000 bottles were tipped down the drain. This renewed emphasis on quality is to be seen in the 2004s that have gone to bottle since January 2006, and in the 2005s and 2006s. The name comes from Victor Hugo’s ‘Légende des Siècles’ in which in the 9th Century, Le Grand Pompée was Charlemagne’s faithful companion in battle, fighting at his side against the Moors, on the right bank of the Rhône. This 100% Syrah is deep ruby red in colour, with youthful violet lights. On the nose, the wine is concentrated, with perfumes of ripe, red fruit, sweet spices and liquorice. Rounded tannins support ripe, red fruit characters on the palate.

Paul Jaboulet Aèné:
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. ... Read more
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

Die Klasse dieses Weins zeigt sich in der Feinheit und der Filigranität, der Eleganz und der Vielschichtigkeit. Von A bis Z, das heisst von der feinen Nase bis zum lange anhaltenden Finale, das nicht enden will, überzeugt er durch seine klare Fruchtstruktur, die verwobene Textur und das Zusammenspiel aller Elemente. Es ist ein charaktervoller Wein; er bietet hohen Trinkgenuss und ist ein hervorragender Essensbegleiter, der durchaus einige Jahre auf der Flasche reifen kann.

Die fruchtige Aromatik in Kombination mit feinen Gewürzen und Kräutern der Garrigue offenbart sich in der Nase vielversprechend und macht Lust auf mehr. Dieser Eindruck wird durch die samtige, fruchtige Struktur und die elegante, feine Textur im Gaumen und im Finale gestärkt. Es ist ein typischer Wein aus dem südlichen Vallée du Rhône, der gefällt und viel Trinkgenuss verspricht.

Ein typischer, klassischer Châteauneuf-du-Pape der alten Schule präsentiert sich im Glas. Aromen von roten Beeren, reifen Früchten und feinen, süsslichen Gewürzen (Süssholz) strömen aus dem Glas. Die Tannine sind reif und verarbeitet, die Säure präsent. Es ist ein südlicher Wein, der im Abgang Gehalt und Körper manifestiert.
