Paul Jaboulet Ané 2003

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Beaumes-de-Venise is in the southern Rhone near Gigondas and Vacqueyras. It produces one of the most intensely flavored of all Muscat wines. Drink well-chilled as an aperitif; accompanies foie gras surprisingly well. Matches desserts such as sorbets and fruit tarts beautifully.

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

Deep yellow straw hue. Full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. orange blossom, honey. Outrageously aromatic, with a rounded, viscous palate. Ripe and generous, with fine length and a touch of warmth to the finish. Well balanced and impressive, this will be best in its youth.

Beaumes-de-Venise, one of the villages entitled to the AOC Côtes du Rhône-Villages, is situated in the Southern Rhône Valley near Gigondas and Vacqueyras. This naturally sweet fortified wine is produced from Muscat of Alexandria grapes. In the hot Mediterranean sun and light, sandy soils, they yield one of the most intensely flavored of all Muscat wines. marvelous with fruit tarts and sorbets or fresh peaches, apricots or cantaloupe.
