Paul Jaboulet Aine is perhaps the world’s best-known maker of Rhone Valley wines. Founded in 1834 by Antoine Jaboulet, the estate was family owned and operated until 2006, when it was purchased by the Swiss financier Jacques Frey, who also owns chateaux in Bordeaux and Champagne. Today the 282-acre estate is based in the appellation of Hermitage and makes a long list of wines, starting with its flagship Hermitage La Chapelle, made of Syrah from 40-60 year-old vines. Jaboulet also makes red and white Crozes Hermitage, Chateauneuf du Pape, white Condrieu and Cornas. Besides Syrah, the estate has vineyards of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.
