2009 Paul Jaboulet Ainé Crozes Hermitage ‘Les Jalets’

2009 Paul Jaboulet Ainé Crozes Hermitage 'Les Jalets'Writing in the LA Times, Irene Virbila recommends this wine, she wrote: “The taste is redolent of spice and blackberries, smoke and something brambly and wild. A close but less glamorous cousin of Hermitage, the 2009 Crozes Hermitage “Les Jalets” from Jaboulet is made from 25-year-old vines. The grapes come mostly from ‘Les Jalets’ vineyard, named after the old French word for the pebbles left by Alpine glaciers.”

Virbila added: “This is a Crozes Hermitage that can stand up to grilled meats. Skip the heavy barbecue sauce, though. I love it with Provencal-style daube of beef with black olives. Butterflied leg of lamb would be a fine match too.”
