Editorial Reviews for Paul Jaboulet Aîné Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert
Tight on the nose and not showing much. Vigorous coaxing yields a touch of peppery, gamy fruit with a growing vein of violet. On entry, this shows a rich yet fairly elegant texture. Seamless with lovely ripe fruits, wild berries, earth and some old wood spice that is subtle and layered, leading to a nice blueberry note on the back end. The finish is fairly long and again shows some old wood layered with fine wild blueberry fruit tones and some gentle, nutty and juniper-driven spice notes. The finish begins to show fine complexity with air: sour plums, smoke and cutting acids, all revealing themselves one at a time. A bit more open knit than I would like given the relatively reticent aromatics, but this is showing fine balance and detailed fresh fruit character. 90pts
The nose showed cherries in fresh turned soil, with notes of undergrowth, candle wax, minerals and floral stems. On the palate it was lean, showing tight blackberry fruit, herbs and hints of stone. The finish was long, with red fruits clinging on the mid-palate. This wine closed in on itself and took six hours, open in bottle, to really show its virtues.
The nose is very earthy and foresty, with coffee and green peppers. Surprisingly little fruit. Very funky. Have liked his other wines much more.

Winemaker's Notes:Powerful and fine; noble tannins; full, well-balanced finish.
Seit 1834 ist die Domaine de Thalabert im Besitze von Paul Jaboulet Aîné. Diese Einzellage besitzt ein Terroir, das sehr typische, vielschichtige Crozes hervorzubringen vermag. Im Bouquet offenbart sich eine intensive Aromatik von reifen Früchten mit dezenten Gewürznoten. Die fruchtige Struktur sowie die kräftige Gerbstofftextur im Gaumen haben Klasse und überzeugen. Im Finale vereinen sich diese zu einer typischen Variante eines terroirspezifischen, traditionellen Syrah.
