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.
