Story

Story

The Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné was created in 1834 through the magical conjunction of a fertile land on a hillside by the Rhone and a family with a passion for winemaking.

Famed through the Hermitage La Chapelle, over the years the Domaines Paul Jaboulet Aîné took ownership of the finest appellations of the northern Rhone Valley, applying organic and biodynamic principles since taken over by the Frey family, ensuring a legacy in both vineyards and incredible wines.

This cuvee has been made from a very drastic selection between the Mediterranean sea and the foothills of the French Alps and the Massif Central area. In these spots, Viognier grape is very expressive in a fresh, balanced and charming style.

Light yellow color with clear and brilliant green reflections, the very expressive nose of this grape variety is a blend of white fruits, peaches and flowers that make up all the charm of this beautiful grape variety.
