Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, April 2018

    Crozes Hermitage is a large appellation and quality can be variable. Paul Jaboulet purchased Domaine de Thalabert in 1834, and since then the estate has been making a leading example of Crozes from its pebbly terraces located in the historic centre of the appellation. This wine has the dark aromas of olive tapenade, with a rich palate displaying peppery, meaty, and dark fruited flavours. It is a cracking new addition to the list.

    The 2016 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert should be drinkable on release. A prospective blend, loaded with black olives and spice, was silky and long.

    Bright violet. Highly perfumed, mineral-accented dark berries, cherry liqueur and candied violet on the nose. At once rich and energetic, offering juicy, focused black raspberry and cherry cola flavors along with a hint of smokiness. Turns sweeter on the lively, penetrating finish, which features sneaky tannins and a strong echo of smoky minerality.

    Score: 17.5

    Smoothly juicy, with a firm, grainy finish this is a polished Thalabert with pepper, blackberry notes and a lovely balance in spite of its youth. This is a complete wine which will blossom quickly but hold well thanks to its robust core of minerality. Drink 2019 - 2030

Producer

Paul Jaboulet Aîné

One of the most recognised producers in the Rhône Valley, Jaboulet was first created in the early 1800s. Up until a couple of years ago, it remained family owned. Over time, it established its flagship Hermitage La Chapelle as one of the top wines of the region ranking it along Chave Hermitage and Guigal single-vineyard Côte-Rôties in quality. In the mid-late 1990s, quality became irregular due to the death of Gérard Jaboulet and other internal issues. In early 2006, the Jaboulet family sold their heralded domaine to the Frey family, owners of Château La Lagune in Bordeaux and major investors in Billecart-Salmon in Champagne. Since this change of hands, investment has been foremost - contributing to new winemaking facilities as well as creating a dramatic and imposing aging cellar sculpted out of an ancient quarry, a space that might put a superhero's headquarters to shame. Their goal is to put Jaboulet's range of wines back on the collector's map. Since their takeover,the results have been noticed. Even Robert Parker has stated, "I fully expect quality will dramatically soar at Jaboulet (just as it has at Château La Lagune in Bordeaux).." (The Wine Advocate, April 2007).

Region

Crozes-Hermitage

The northern Rhône's largest appellation, Crozes-Hermitage produces approximately 8 times more than its more distinguished neighbour, Hermitage. Crozes, too, has both red and whites similar to Hermitage and in many ways is very similar in style, though less concentrated and complex. Plump, silky and smooth, they are usually made for early consumption; however certain producers have been known to make Crozes-Hermitages which need to cellared for several years and can be further kept for up to a decade.
