The opinion of the sommelier

As it is a world class winery, Jaboulet is one of the most famous names in the Rhône Valley. However, Philippe and Vincent made the choice to get out of the Family winery so as to grow smaller parcels and make exactly the wine they love. And they did well as Clémence is one of my favourite wine and each vintage is in my personal cellar.  

 

Terroir

Crozes-Hermitage faces Saint-Joseph just on the other side of the river. Both have syrah in common, but they produces quite different expressions of this variety. Jaboulet’s vines are located in the south of the appellation on a light soil that lets the roots growing very deep into the ground. Therefore, vine stocks capture a lot of different nutrient that end in the berries which gives its high level of complexity to the wine.

lecepage Grape variety

Only black variety in the northern Rhône Valley, syrah gives there its finest expression with a lot of power, spicy aromas and firm yet elegant tannins. This tannic structure allows to keep the wine a few years for ageing: it will be a little less powerful but a little more complex as it will have developed aromas of leather or mushrooms.

lemillesime Vintage

2016 is overall a nice vintage in the Rhône Valley. Contrarily to other winemaking regions, there were no frost and no hail. Summer was dry and warm and dried all the water brought by a rainy spring. Eventually, the grapes reached full ripeness.  

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Founded in 1834, Jaboulet is one of the most famous wineries in the area (and in France as it is quite big). After 30 years being in charge of the hundreds of hectares of vineyard of the family, Philippe wanted to think smaller to make better. That’s why he founded with his son Vincent his own Domaine.
