Paul Jaboulet Aîné

Founded in 1834 they were for many years one of the leading names in the wine world, making legendary wines such as the 1961 Hermitage La Chapelle but fell on harder times after the death of Gérard Jaboulet in 1997. In 2006 the company was bought by the Frey family, from the Champagne region and already owners of Château La Lagune in Bordeaux. With Caroline Frey at the helm the vineyards were set on a course towards the 2016 wines being certified organic with the move towards biodynamic viticulture in progress. The Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage vineyards have been managed biodynamically since 2017. Biodiversity is encouraged in the vineyards and the surrounding area. Winemaking is gentle with minimum intervention, the aim being to let the terroirs and vintages express themselves. They have holdings throughout the Northern Rhône but the core is in Crozes-Hermitage and on the hill of Hermitage.
