An emblematic name for the great wines of the northern Rhône 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 the 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.
The vines, aged by around 35 years, are planted on clay-limestone and clay-sand soils, giving this 2019 Chevalier de Stérimberg by Paul Jaboulet-Aîné the complexity and elegance of a Hermitage wine.
The 2019 Chevalier de Stérimberg by Paul Jaboulet-Aîné is made from a blend of Marsanne (70%) and Roussane (30%).
