Paul Jaboulet Aîné Crozes-Hermitage les Jalets 2006
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.
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.
A very nice compliment with roasted chicken.
