While most Ermitage is refined or delicate, we find that this one packs a punch! Its strength is a signature of the oak fermentation process, which the Jaboulets only apply to select Syrahs.

  • A remarkably deep, inky purple. The nose is complex and still developing, with notes of oak, cedar, cigar box, cloves, licorice, tapenade, game, and other meats, followed by mushrooms, an earthy minerality, and briary fruit. Full-bodied, with an enveloping floral character, the palate also suggests olive tapenade, black fruit, and pruney jam. Mouth-coating, with a chewy texture and grippy tannins. Rich. Intensely concentrated fruit. No flab.

    Food pairing: duck in sauce; cassoulet

  • Rustic, with barnyard scents and good structure suggesting longevity. Blackberry and blackcurrants on the palate, along with smoky meat and mushrooms. Fruit-driven but expect the dark fruit to soften with time, letting more earthy characteristics show through.

    Food pairing: Beef stew

The Creator of This Wine

Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet

Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet

After 30 years overseeing the famous Paul Jaboulet Aîné vineyards, Philippe Jaboulet decided it was time for a change. Taking 37 acres (15 hectares) of the old family business, he teamed up with his son Vincent to combine it with 37 acres of new land -- creating the new Domaine Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet.
