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

From Fine Cooking: "Tastes like ripe black fruits with notes of wild herbs, earth, and just a touch of oak. This simple Cotes du Rhone hails from one of the best producers. Great with meat stews, grilled beef, and meat-based pasta dishes."

Red-ruby. Sappy, liqueur-like aromas of red fruits and milk chocolate. Fat, layered and sweet; this sample seemed almost as rich as Jabouletrsquo;s 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape. Finishes with a late hit of pepper.

According to Jacques Jaboulet, the 2000 Cotes du Rhone Parallel 45 (85% Grenache and 15% Syrah) is the ldquo;best since 1970.rdquo; It is a sexy, full-bodied effort. The deeply-colored 2000 offers sweet black fruits intermixed with scents of kirsch, pepper, and spice. Drink this rich, fleshy Cotes du Rhone over the next 2ndash;3 years.

Dark red. Inviting aromas of currant, leather, smoke, pepper and earth. Sweet, elegant and showy, with lovely juicy currant and pepper flavors. Has a distinctly claret-like weight and plummy character. Finishes suave and long. Showing a lot of person... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Fairly intense crushed red berry flavors in this light- to medium-bodied Syrah. Delivers some smoke, floral and oak notes on the slightly tough finish. Drink now through 2004. 6,910 cases made. -PM Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2000 Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes Hermitage les Jalets 750ml

Very aromatic, refined and intriguing. A medium-bodied wine that opens up with crisp, citrusy notes that are a bit sour, then delivers freshly crushed red berries, dried herbs and cassis in a rather narrow range. Not much seduction here, but there is a mineral, iron, wet earth and terroir quality that is unmistakably unique and keeps you coming back for more. Cellar for years. Best from 2005 through 2015.

Dark red. Inviting aromas of currant, leather, smoke, pepper and earth. Sweet, elegant and showy, with lovely juicy currant and pepper flavors. Has a distinctly claret-like weight and plummy character. Finishes suave and long. Showing a lot of personality today but this will evolve fairly rapidly. The 2001, which featured a stricter selection of fruit, seems much younger and capable of slower development in bottle.
