RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Food Pairings for Paul Jaboulet Aîné Côte-Rôtie les Jumelles
14.5% alcohol gives this a great and almost oily texture and a faint sense of sweetness. Blind, it reminded me of an unoaked French chardonnay. Lots of nice pears, minerals, a hint of toast but not oaky, relatively light acidity. Very nice quaffer.
External Reviews for Paul Jaboulet Aîné Côte-Rôtie les Jumelles
Deceptively graceful at first, with a Burgundian-like perfume, this quickly delivers a torrent of fruit — blackberry, boysenberry and black currant — that cascades over itself, pushed from behind by flavors of mocha, mineral, tar and violets. Long, sweet and pure through a densely structured finish. Best from 2008 through 2030.
Deep, saturated ruby. Intensely spicy aromas of blackberry, bitter cherry, tobacco and minerals, with a complicating note of black pepper that became more pronounced with air. This is quite fresh and lively for the vintage, showing tangy red and dark berry flavors and a solid, chewy texture. Finishes with considerable finesse.
The finest example of this cuvee since 1990, the 2003 Hermitage La Chapelle (50,000 bottles rather than the normal 96,000+ were produced) possesses an inky/purple color as well as a tremendous bouquet of creme de cassis, crushed flowers, truffles, and licorice. Full-bodied and powerful (15% natural alcohol) with good freshness and definition, this big, rich, dense, reassuringly great La Chapelle should be cellared for 5–8 years, and drunk over the following 20–25.
This well-known Rhone négociant, owned by the Jaboulet family since 1834, was sold earlier this year to Jean-Jacques Frey, owner of Château La Lagune and part-owner of Billecart-Salmon. Heat and drought in 2003 resulted in dramatically lower yields than normal for this estate red. The Syrah grapes were fermented in glass-lined concrete vats for three weeks and spent 18 months aging in barrel (less than 50 percent new oak) before being bottled, unfiltered.
Massively built, this swaggers like a prizefighter, its deep, staining flavors of black fruits and molasses throbbing with raw, smoky power. It’s clearly in need of time, but it will always be a wine that thrives on muscularity rather than finesse or complexity. It’s impressive for the sheer scale of its fruit and the way that the ripeness is controlled within a structured frame. Be prepared for a heady, full-throttled experience.
