Winemaker's Notes

This wine is named for the 45th North parallel which runs two kilometers from the Jaboulet cellars. In a nearby village, a monument reads: "Here begins the South." Borne from family pride in generations of winemaking, this Jaboulet wine known as "Parallèle 45" has had this name since the 1950s.

The wine is made utilizing a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes from 25 year-old vines in hillside terraced and sloped vineyards. The soils are clay, stones, pebbles and argillaceous limestone, which lends depth and complexity to the wine. Made with traditional vinification methods, the wine undergoes long vatting and temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Yields are kept to 45 hl/ha and the wine will keep for 1 to 5 years.

Food Match: turkey, roasts, red meat, pork, pizza, pasta in meat sauce, lamb, grilled vegetables, grilled meats, game, fowl, beef.

An elegant, smooth Rhone punctuated with just the right amount of spice and acidity. A great value if you can find it for $10-$12.
