An emblematic name for the great wines of the northern Rhone Valley, the Paul Jaboulet-Aîné House was founded in 1834 in Tain L’Hermitage. The reputed oenologist and winegrower, Caroline Frey, runs this illustrious house, owned by by Frey family since 2006.
The Paul Jaboulet-Aîné House overlooks a 125-hectare vineyard, spread across exceptional appellations such as Saint-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and even Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.
Wounded during the Albigensian Crusade in 1224, the knight, Gaspard de Sterimberg, asked Queen Blanche of Castile for permission to settle on a hill, on which he founded his hermitage. He built the Saint-Christophe Chapel there in 1235.
Roussanne and Marsanne vines are planted on this hill on clay-limestone and clayey-sand soils, giving this Chevalier de Stérimberg 2017 by Paul Jaboulet-Aîné the complexity and elegance of a Hermitage wine.
