Brand Paul Jaboulet Aine
The first ever vineyard owned by Paul Jaboulet - purchased in 1834. Also holds the distinction as the oldest vineyard of the appellation. Considered the benchmark for Crozes-Hermitages with the ability to age for decades. 60-80 year old vines. Biodynamically farmed. Vines grown on pebbly terraces that are glacial in origin, with the bedrock close to the topsoil. These small, round pebbles store heat during the day and release it at night, providing optimum and regular maturity. Very low yields of 25 hl/ha. Aged in French oak, 20% new.

The 2016 Crozes Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert offers a rocking (and classic) bouquet of ripe black fruits intermixed with notions new saddle leather, pepper, garrigue, and hints of bacon fat. This ripe, medium to full-bodied, silky wine has remarkable purity, is already complex, and finishes with serious length. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years

Deep vivid ruby. Vibrant, highly perfumed black and blue fruit, floral and incense aromas pick up exotic spice and mineral flourishes with aeration. Pure, focused and energetic in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet boysenberry, cassis and violet pastille flavors that show no rough edges. Deepens steadily on the very long, lively finish, which features resonating florality and well-knit tannins.

The classically styled 2016 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert boasts savory scents of black olive and leather. Medium to full-bodied, it's plummy and rich, creamy and ripe but savory and earthy, not jammy at all, with a lingering, velvety-textured finish. It drinks well now, but it should continue to evolve and drink well through 2035.

"This shows pretty dark fruit along with cloves, dark berries and hints of black pepper. Medium to full body and a juicy finish. Publish Date: Wednesday, August 29, 2018"

A ripe, fresh style, featuring a silky mix of raspberry and blackberry fruit laced with anise and black tea notes. Light chalky minerality lets the finish linger. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases imported.
