Paul Jaboulet Ané Parallèle 45 Vin Rosé 2010

External Review:

I didnrsquo;t spend too much time thinking about this wine. I just poured it, drank it, and enjoyed it. Good, grapey Cocirc;tes-du-Rhocirc;ne made year in and year our to a formula that works. Reliable and solid, as opposed to special. An undeniable value.

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

The 1996 possesses a dark plum color, kirsch-like fruit and a straightforward, medium-bodied, easy-going style that requires consumption over the next 2ndash;3 years.

This generous red offers plenty of sweet cherry character, with moderate tannins and hints of wild rosemary and sage. Balanced. Drink now.

A delicious Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne at a more than reasonable price, this red is rich and concentrated, displaying raspberry, cherry and dried herb notes, light tannins and a lengthy aftertaste. Drink now through 2000.

A great value that shows potential of the rsquo;98 vintage in Southern Rhocirc;ne. Hedonistic and dense, with smoke, red berry, mocha and black chocolate, this medium-bodied, medium-intense, nicely oaked red makes for delightful drinking now through 2003.

Good black cherry, mineral, sage and cocoa flavors here, with fresh acidity carrying the finish. Hint of spice cake too. Drink now.

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.
