Paul Jaboulet Crozes Hermitage Mule Blanche White French Rhone Wine 375 mL

$16.99

Winemaker Notes

From a 7 ha plot in the heart of the original Crozes-Hermitage that was purchased by the Paul Jaboulet family in 1834! Biodynamically farmed, which allows the grapes to be picked earlier than the rest of the appellation to preserve freshness and acidity.

Vines grown on a rock debris from the river L’Isère, with a small base of clay and limestone. Allows for great draining which is ideal for proper maturation of Marsanne and Roussanne

Blend: 50% Marsanne, 50% Roussanne

Description

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck 93 Points – Burgundian notes of crushed citrus, white flowers, salty minerality, orange pith, and honeysuckle all emerge from the 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine Mule Blanche, and it’s fresh, medium to full-bodied, concentrated and elegant on the palate.
James Suckling 91 Points – Attractive white-peach, banana and melon aromas with a sleek, fresh and fleshy feel to the palate. Supple, long and elegant with apples, papaya and melon in abundance. Good weight and very well balanced. Drink now.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 90 Points – Sourced from Les Chassis near Domaine de Thalabert, the 2018 Crozes Hermitage Mule Blanche (Domaine) is a 50-50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne. The nose features crushed stone, toasted marshmallow, pear and melon scents, while the medium to full-bodied palate is round without being expansive and crisp without being edgy. While it’s not my favorite of the white wines this vintage, it’s still a very solid effort.
