Paul Jaboulet Aîné Côte-Rôtie les Jumelles 1995

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Brick red in the glass. Truffle remains on the nose and savory mushroom. Aromas of grilled herbs, pepper and dried bay leaf. Dried red fruit aromas also. Fading palate with flavors of dried red fruits, pretty red currant and berry under truffle and a savory salinity. It has held on well, but drink now. 91 pts. 3/9/13

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

Surprisingly fragrant for it's age with a youthful bouquet of strawberry and other red berries with hints of cocoa. Creamy texture. Lovely dark berry fruit throughout and only hints of its age in the leather and dried leafy tones. Really stood up well. - Tasted at Schreiner's Winers: The Aging Process- Library/Older Wines 5/21/10

A saturated purple/plum color is accompanied by gamy, blackberry, and smoked meat aromas. While this wine is rich and full-bodied, the question mark reflects its gritty, astringent tannin and austere personality. It is a large-scaled, boldly-flavored... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 1995 Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage la Chapelle 1500ml
