Editorial Reviews for Paul Jaboulet Aine Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone
A bit of mealy apple on the nose along with dried lemon zest and some nice almost lilac floral tones. Very smooth in the mouth and frankly soft, this is rich and mouth-filling but does lack any sense of definition. Some nice flavors of apple, orange and fennel fronds float around on the palate before disappearing on the short, slight fennel flavored finish. 80pts
Fruity nose with lots going on in the palate! Classic stone fruits and honeydew melon, citrus zest and is that sesame I taste? A great sipper that would pair with sweet and tangy foods.
Appley and acidic, with maybe a hint of sour pineapple? Thicker mouthfeel and a little perfumey.
Very smooth, almost no tannic flavors.
Honey, apple, with complex citrus fruits
