A delightful northern Rhône Syrah from one of the region's superstars. Claims
Jaboulet's Crozes Hermitage Les Jalets comes from 15 acres of vineyard located on the steep terraces of Les Chassis. Its name comes from the word "jalets" which is the Old French word for the pebbles left by alpine glaciers, as can be found at Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
Les Jalets has an attractive bright ruby color with a violet hue. Aromas of tart red berries, with a spicy final note. On the palate it is smooth, rich attack, finishing with licorice notes. This wine is the perfect match for flank steak with shallots, steak in green peppercorn sauce, and sausages.
