Paul Jaboulet Aîné Crozes-Hermitage les Jalets 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :Les jalets is in old French, refers to the round pebbles deposited by the alpine glaciers which are very present in the Crozes Hermitage appellation. The wine mainly comes from the Châssis plain. Production does not exceed 40 hectolitres per hectare. It is a light wine, with agreable soft tannins, which give immediate pleasure.

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

This is a clear, medium intensity, ruby colored wine that has legs. It has a clean, developing nose of medium intensity that has aromas of blackberry and oak. It has medium(+) acidity, medium(+) tannins, medium(+) alcohol and a medium body. It has flavors of blackberry, black cherry and oak with a medium(+) length finish. It is a good, high-priced wine that is ready to drink but will improve with age.

Medium bodied, medium intensity; also very refined and persistent, and slightly exotic. A good change from all the clunky reds out there, even at this price. Very smooth.
