Crozes Hermitage Blanc "Les Jalets" 2016 - Paul Jaboulet Ainé


Made of 100% Marsanne, this white Crozes-Hermitage is an absolute beauty! Medium-bodied, it develops plenty of fruit aromas - peach, melon - along with honey and white flower notes. It ends in a long finish with a lovely refreshing acidity that call for more. Perfect for any chicken or white fish dishes!

90/100 "Made from 100% Marsanne, this white Crozes-Hermitage is a beautiful, but sadly all too rare, wine. Engaging stone fruit aromas lead into a voluptuous and pretty palate of peach, honey and white flowers. The richness is tempered by a refreshing acidity." (previous vintage)

91/100 "White peach, green melon and pear flavors cruise through, with a flash of salted butter enlivening the finish. Drink now through 2019."
