Our online feature this week is the Paul Jaboulet Aine Cotes-du-Rhone Villages (Rhone Valley, France) – $21.99 , regularly $27.49.

Paul Jaboulet Aîné is amongst the Rhône Valley’s most iconic and respected producers. Founded in 1834, the estate was bought in 2006 by Jean-Jacques Frey, the owner of 3rd Growth Bordeaux La Lagune. Under the Frey family, the estate worked to convert to sustainable farming, and in 2016 they were certified organic, a major achievement. They now farm biodynamically.

The reputation of Jaboulet wines rests on the quality of the well-situated and well-tended vineyards, on low yields, careful vinification, and diligent aging in oak casks. The preference for carefully integrated oak aging, in which the influence of wood is never allowed to become excessive has resulted in consistently well balanced wines across the entire portfolio. Since this is an important point, they have their own cooper who makes and maintains their stock of barrels.

Our feature this week is their Cotes-du-Rhone Villages – this organically certified red made from Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah exudes aromas of red fruits, strawberries, but also figs and sweet spices. The palate is broad, delicious, fresh and very suave. A powerful fruity treat that symbolizes the Jaboulet robustness and elegance – essential qualities of a fine wine. Pair with a hearty stew.
