Paul Jaboulet Ainé Crozes-Hermitage Rouge 'Domaine de Thalabert' 2015

France

A long term NYW favourite, this looks to be one of the best ever.
"The 2015 reds from the Northern Rhône are truly spectacular and this vintage rivals or surpasses the 2010s and 2009s. Brought up in a mix of tronconique tanks and Burgundy barrels (20% being new), the 2015 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert is a big, serious, full-bodied effort that’s reminiscent of a slightly softer version of the 2010. Scorched earth, black fruits, cassis, black olive and a hint of graphite all emerge from this sensational Crozes Hermitage. You’ll need to forget bottles for 4-5 years, but it will have over two decades of longevity." 93-95pts Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parker;s The Wine Advocate

"made from vines that range from 40 to 60 years old; raised for a year in oak barrels, 20 percent of them new) Youthful violet. Powerful mineral- and spice-accented blue fruit liqueur and violet aromas are complemented by suggestions of liquorice and white pepper. Concentrated and expansive on the palate, offering intense blueberry, cherry and spice-cake flavours and an exotic Indian spice quality that builds on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and lift on the finish, which is framed by velvety, harmonious tannins that fold smoothly into the juicy dark fruit." 92-94pts Josh Raynolds Vinous

Paul Jaboulet Ainé Crozes-Hermitage Rouge 'Domaine de Roure' 2015

France

"The 2015 reds from the Northern Rhône are truly spectacular and this vintage rivals or surpasses the 2010s and 2009s. Possibly the best vintage to date—which could be said for a number of these cuvées in 2015—the 2015 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Roure is loaded with notions of cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with undeniable granite-like minerality, graphite and spring flower aromas and flavours. This ripe, full-bodied, deep and layered wine packs plenty of fruit while still showing the elegance and finesse that this estate is known for." 92-94+pts Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
"raised for a year in oak barrels, 20 percent of them new) Youthful purple. An explosively perfumed bouquet displays intense boysenberry, raspberry, star anise and violet scents, and a smoky mineral nuance gains strength with air. Alluringly sweet, energetic red and blue fruit, spice-cake and floral pastille flavours show excellent clarity and mineral lift for their heft. Supple, slow-building tannins add grip to the finish, which lingers with outstanding, floral-driven persistence. These vines are between 40 and 60 years old." 92-94 pts Josh Raynolds Vinous

Paul Jaboulet Ainé Hermitage Rouge Saint Joseph 'Domaine de la Croix des Vignes' 2015

France

"Notes of cassis, liquid rock, pepper and olives dominate the bouquet of the 2015 St Joseph Domaine de La Croix des Vignes, a medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant St Joseph that has fine tannin and impeccable balance. As with all of the wines here, the winemaking is top notch, and this should be drinkable with just a few years of cellaring, yet still evolve gracefully." 92-94pts Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

"(aged for a year in barriques, 20 percent of them new) Opaque ruby. Powerful black and blue fruit and liquorice scents are sharpened by cracked pepper and mineral notes. Stains the palate with concentrated blueberry and bitter cherry flavours that open up steadily with aeration. Shows very good depth as well as energy and finishes long and sappy, with chewy tannins framing the densely packed dark fruit. This is the most backward 2015 Boulet wine at this point."

Paul Jaboulet Ainé Cornas 'Domaine de St-Pierre' 2015

France

"The 2015 reds from the Northern Rhône are truly spectacular and this vintage rivals or surpasses the 2010s and 2009s. The 2015 Cornas Domaine de Saint-Pierre is an absolute blockbuster that blew me away. Readers looking for a wine that tastes like the essence of these steep, wild, granite hillsides need to latch on to this. Black olives, beef blood, cassis, smoked meat and pepper all emerge from this big, backwards, full-bodied and concentrated beauty. It’s going to need 4-5 years of bottle age to be drinkable". 93-95pts Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

Paul Jaboulet Ainé Hermitage Rouge 'La Maison Bleue' 2015

France

Previously know as La Petite Chapelle, this is the new name for 2014 to indicate this is not the second wine of La Chapelle but its own distinctive style and terroir.
"(raised in 20% new oak): Opaque ruby. Powerful smoke- and spice-accented aromas of ripe blueberry, olive and violet are lifted by a zesty mineral overtone. Deeply concentrated yet lively, showing impressive focus and energy to its black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavours, which pick up an Indian spice accent as the wine opens up. Deftly marries power and finesse and finishes extremely long and sweet, with repeating dark berry character and youthful tannins that sneak in late. Note that this wine was called La Petite Chapelle through the 2014 vintage." 93-95 Josh Raynolds Vinous

Paul Jaboulet Ainé Cote Rotie 'Domaine des Pierrelles' 2015

France

"(aged for a year in oak barrels, 20 percent of them new) Inky ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackberry, passion fruit, liquorice and potpourri, and a mineral nuance adds vivacity. Sweet, seamless and expansive in the mouth, offering sappy, deeply concentrated red and blue fruit flavours and a touch of peach pit. Violet pastille and blueberry notes cling tenaciously on the youthfully tannic, penetrating finish." 92-94pts Josh Raynolds Vinous

"Elegant, seamless and silky, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Domaine des Pierrelles offers a big floral edge in its sappy, violet, green olive and ripe black cherry-driven aromas and flavours. This medium to full-bodied, layered, beautifully balanced Côte Rôtie will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for a decade." 91-93 Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
