Paul Jaboulet Aine Les Jalets Rouge 2011
Attractive bright ruby color with a violet hue. On the nose scents of lavender and violet. On the palate, there is a smooth, rich attack with notes of blackcurrant and cherry finishing with liquorice notes. A 100% syrah wine, round and spicy with supple tannin.
Paul Jaboulet Aîné has been a trend-setting grower and shipper in the Rhône 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.
