2015 MAISON PAUL JABOULET AINE - CROZES HERMITAGE DOMAINE THALABERT

© François Tran, 17th July 2019

Recently, I tried the 2015 Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné – Crozes-Hermitage ‘Domaine de Thalabert’ over lunch at our office. We were tasting a new dish, roasted lamb racks, crafted by Randy See and Chef Peter Teo from Bistro du Vin. I decided to pull a bottle of the Crozes-Hermitage to a pair with this dish. It was mindblasting! The lovely combination of herbs, garlic, shallots, and tender green peas along with the juicy flavour of the roasted meat stopped time. Then, a glass of the decanted Crozes-Hermitage refreshed my palate, inviting another bite of the succulent lamb. The wine was full-bodied with aromas of spices, red berries, blackcurrants, plums, liquorice and minerally and earthy notes. It’s a wine to drink with grilled or roasted meat and perfect for barbecues. I’ve already set aside a magnum for my summer BBQ party where we plan to watch the Tour de France and eat grilled merguez, côte de boeuf, beef and green pepper skewers, and marinated chicken. 

Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné is among the oldest estates in the Northern Rhône dating back to 1834. Crozes-Hermitage is known for its rocky terrain and long history. The Crozes-Hermitage ‘Domaine de Thalabert’ was the first vineyard purchased by Antoine Jaboulet and is the oldest vineyard in Crozes-Hermitage. It now covers 40 hectares and is planted with Syrah vines that are approximately 40 to 60 years old. These vines are grown in gravelly soil, and the yields are kept low at around 25hl/ha to promote optimal ripeness and concentration in the wine. The Crozes-Hermitage ‘Domaine de Thalabert’ is made from 100% Syrah and matured for twelve months in French oak barrels 20% of which are new.

In 2006, the Frey family, owners of Château La Lagune in Bordeaux, took over Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné and made many improvements including applying organic and biodynamic farming practices and have earned Sustainable Farming status. These high quality standards are also part of their winemaking practices. The 2015 Crozes-Hermitage ‘Domaine de Thalabert’ is a delicious wine and great value option on our list; the wine is made with rigorous standards and is capable of ageing too. Let us know if you’d like a bottle, magnum or two for your summer BBQ!
