Tasting Notes:

  • An explosively perfumed bouquet evokes raspberry and mulberry preserves, incense, floral oils and smoky minerals. Lush, palate-coating black and blue fruit and violet flavors show excellent clarity and lift thanks to a strong dose of spiciness.
  • A sleek and focused style, relying on a solid beam of raspberry and blackberry pâte de fruit flavors, with light anise, singed vanilla, cedar and fruitcake accents through the finish. Best from 2020 through 2030.

Paul Jaboulet Cote Rotie Les Jumelles 2015

Paul Jaboulet Cote Rotie Les Jumelles 2015, has received good scores from various critics: the 1997 vintage was given a score of 91 by The Wine Advocate and the 2015 vintage was given a score of 92 by Wine Spectator. The Wine Spectator Top 100 awarded the 1985 vintage Wine Spectator Top 100 #61. This is one of the most popular wines from the region (with Wine-Searcher users). Interest in this wine has fallen off relative to previous years.

Cote Rotie is a prestigious red-wine appellation at the northern tip of France’s Rhône Valley wine region. The Syrah vines on its steep, southeast-facing slopes produce wines which are both powerful and elegant. Improvements in quality have led to increases in demand for the wines – a cycle which turned so consistently that Côte Rôtie wines are now some of France’s most sought-after and most expensive.

Situated immediately south of Vienne and 35km (21 miles) from the center of Lyon, the Côte Rôtie is the Rhône Valley’s northernmost appellation, and one of its smallest. The parishes of Ampuis, Saint-Cyr-sur-le-Rhône and Tupin-et-Semons are the only three that may produce Côte Rôtie wines, and even within the parishes, only certain plots qualify for the appellation. The ridges run roughly north-east to south-west, providing the sun-baked aspects that help to make the appellation’s wines so rich and ripe. The very finest sites – the Côte Brune, Côte Blonde, La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque – are those immediately above Ampuis town.

Côte Rôtie wines are renowned for being elegant and finely structured, with complex aromas typical of the local terroir and of the Syrah grape variety from which they are made. As is the case in Crozes-Hermitage, an addition of up to 20 percent of the white variety Viognier is permitted under the appellation law, and producers take advantage of this to bring elegance and balance to their wines.
