Paul Jaboulet Aine is one of the most storied estates in all of the Rhone Valley, their Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone is one of the finest red Rhone value wines. The wine is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah made from 40 plus year old vines and then aged in 20% large used barrels and 60% in stainless steel vats.
Parallele 45 is distinctly a northern style Cotes Du Rhone with beautiful fresh Syrah characteristics. Notes of fresh wild berries, white pepper, lavender and cherry dominate the nose. The palate is medium bodied with berry, spice and floral notes, with a juicy balanced finish of pure Grenache love.
