Paul Jaboulet Aine, “Mule Blanche”, Crozes Hermitage AOC
This wine comes from our plots called ‘Conflans’, one of the best terroirs of the Appellation. The name of the cuvée comes from the draught animals that worked on these plots. These old vines, planted in high density, required the work of a mule, finer, much more agile and resistant than the traditional horse. These mules shaped these vines and left their mark through this slender and distinguished wine.
This estate of around 7ha is located on the low terraces of pebbles from alluvial origin. The soil is mainly composed of clay and limestone.
Burgundian notes of crushed citrus, white flowers, salty minerality, orange pith, and honeysuckle all emerge from the 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Mule Blanche, and it’s fresh, medium to full-bodied, concentrated and elegant on the palate. Give it a year or two. – Jeb Dunnuck 93pts
