This estate of around 40 ha is located on pebbly terraces that are glacial in origin. These small, round pebbles store heat during the day and release it at night, providing optimum and regular maturity.
Domaine de Thalabert, property of Paul Jaboulet Aîné since 1834, is the oldest vineyard in the Appellation. The Crozes Hermitage vineyard is the largest of all the Northern Rhône Valley Appellations and extends over 11 communes situated in the Drôme, on the left bank of the Rhône. A former farmhouse that belonged to the Gounon family, the building and its enclosure now house our first LPO biodiversity refuge, Clos Gounon.
Hand-picked, sorting on the plot, in small crates. The vatting period lasts around 4 weeks with gentle extractions. Aged in French oak barrels (20% new).
