97 Point Jaboulet Crozes-Hermitage, As Low As $34.99
"The finest vintage to date, better even than the stellar 2010, the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert is a gorgeous, deep, layered, and incredibly satisfying Crozes...full-bodied, gorgeously textured and seamless 2015. With fine tannin and no hard edge, it can be drunk today or cellaring for 15-20 years.
-Jeb Dunnuck, 97 Points

Paul Jaboulet Aine has been a trend-setting grower and shipper in the Rhone since 1834. The Jaboulet company was founded by Antoine Jaboulet, and his twin sons, Paul and Henri continued to expand the family business. The elder son ("aîné" in French), Paul, established the company in its present form and gave it his own name. Since then, the company has been run by successive generations of sons from that side of the Jaboulet family.

One of the Rhone's most recognizable wineries, the reputation of Jaboulet wines rests on the quality of the well-situated and well-tended vineyards, on low yields, careful vinification, and diligent aging in oak casks. This is a massive estate, with 102 hectares of vines, including just over 56 in Crozes-Hermitage, 21 in Hermitage and the rest spread across Cote-Rotie, Condrieu, Saint-Joseph, Cornas and Saint-Peray. Domaine de Thalabert is the first ever vineyard owned by Paul Jaboulet - purchased in 1834; it also holds the distinction as the oldest vineyard of the appellation.
Considered the benchmark for Crozes-Hermitages with the ability to age for decades, this wine is made from 60-80 year old vines that are biodynamically farmed. The vines grow on pebbly terraces that are glacial in origin, with the bedrock close to the topsoil. These small, round pebbles store heat during the day and release it at night, providing optimum and regular maturity. Aged in French oak, only 20% new, according to Robert Parker, "the winemaking here has also adapted over time, paying less homage to Bordeaux and becoming more Burgundian/Rhonish in style."
Jaboulet wines symbolize robustness and elegance, essential qualities of great wines. Their crown jewel is their Hermitage "La Chapelle" which Clive Coates states "is one of the great red wines of the world."
On top of that, 2015 was an excellent vintage for the Northern Rhone, rated 99 by Wine Spectator and 98 points by Vinous Media. In fact, their reviewer Josh Raynolds said of Jaboulet's wines:
"These 2015s are a seriously great group of wines..."

"The finest vintage to date, better even than the stellar 2010,
the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert is a gorgeous, deep, layered, and incredibly satisfying Crozes. Blackcurrants, olive tapenade, truffles and earthy notes all emerge from this full-bodied, gorgeously textured and seamless 2015. With fine tannin and no hard edge, it can be drunk today or cellaring for 15-20 years." (1/2018)

92-94 Points - Vinous Media:

"(made from vines that range from 40 to 60 years old; raised for a year in oak barrels, 20 percent of them new) Youthful violet. Powerful mineral- and spice-accented blue fruit liqueur and violet aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice and white pepper. Concentrated and expansive on the palate, offering intense blueberry, cherry and spicecake flavors and an exotic Indian spice quality that builds on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and lift on the finish, which is framed by velvety, harmonious tannins that fold smoothly into the juicy dark fruit." (4/2017)

93 Points - Robert Parker:
"The 2015 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert is a super effort, packed with savory notes of black olives and crushed stones. It's full-bodied and rich, with a hint of cedary oak, but there's plenty of fruit and ripe tannins on the lingering finish. Like some of those fine Thalabert vintages of the past, it should drink well for a couple of decades." (JC) 93+ (12/2017)

93 Points - James Suckling:
*Smooth, impressive flesh and weight. Graphite-like stony minerally aromas with dark cherries and darker plums, the oak adding cedary woody notes. The palate has an impressive plushness as well as assertive tannins below. Extremely defined, pure and attractive. A great vintage. Best from 2019 and for a decade at least." (Sept 2017)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"What a delicious nose of brambleberries, vanilla, mocha-scented oak, spice box, plum liqueur, licorice and milk chocolate. Full-bodied and rich with plenty of dense fruit and fresh acidity that carries this to a long finish. Almost verges on too much but pulls back. Drink now or hold. "

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit and exotic spice are front and center on this delicious red. On the fresh palate, tightly knit, polished tannins carry mouthwatering black cherry, blackberry compote, mocha and cinnamon. Enjoy through 2024.
