Côte-Rôtie "Les Jumelles" 2011 - Paul Jaboulet Aîné


We have kept the best for the end, as we are notoriously Côte Rôtie lovers! This 100% Syrah is superb, with a degree of elegance rarely seen. It shows a fine nose of black fruit with a floral touch and a palate with explosive aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry. The finish is really long with hints of sweet spices. Very, very classy. Top notch Côte Rôtie!

A word about the domain
Created in 1834 by Antoine Jaboulet, Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné generally does not need to be introduced to wine amateurs. Its famous Hermitage la Chapelle, among other wines, has made its prestigious reputation. The Frey family, who bought the domain in 2006, are continuously making huge investments to maintain the highest possible standards. Owners of some of the best parcels in the region, they treat the vines with a profound respect. They also buy grapes from carefully selected producers, who they work with very closely.
