This famous Rhône winery was bought by the Frey family in 2006. The Freys, owners of Château La Lagune in Bordeaux, saw the potential of the vineyards. They brought renewed energy to this corner of France. Jaboulet’s most celebrated wine is its Hermitage La Chapelle, named after the chapel that overlooks this most celebrated of vineyards. Jaboulet have owned the chapel since the end of the first world war. It’s an icon of this part of the Rhône valley. And it marks where the best vines are grown. Since the takeover, Caroline Frey has successfully transformed the entire range, putting more emphasis on greater fruit expression and dramatically reducing the amount of new oak. The only way is up for this transformed domaine.


"A blend of Grenache blanc, Marsanne, Viognier and Bourboulenc, the nose here is surprisingly delicate, just a touch of white flowers to zesty citrus and apple skins. In the mouth it has the texture and acid grip of so many white Rhône blends, a juicy but taut and pithy lemon character, just a touch of Viognier peachiness softening the edges a touch." - Tom Cannavan,
