This Côtes du Rhône takes its name from the 45th north parallel which runs two kilometres from our cellars. In the village of Pont de l'Isère, a monument symbolizes this line with an inscription: ?The South begins here?. Our wine has had this name since the beginning of the 1950s.
Jaboulet Côtes du Rhône Parallèle 45 is a blend of Grenache and Syrah from vines averaging 25 years old. Sourced from vineyards throughout the Rhone valley that combine to produce a pure, clean expression of this region.
The grapes arrive at the winery and are sorted and vinified in stainless steel tank for 3 to 4 weeks to extract flavor, followed by 3-6 months in tank prior to bottling. The goal is to retain freshness and balance while producing a robust and food friendly wine.
Northern style Côtes du Rhône, with beautiful fresh Syrah character. Notes of wild berries, white pepper, lavender and cherries. This balanced red finishes with incredibly juicy Grenache love.
