2015 Crozes-Hermitage, Thalabert, Jaboulet
Crozes Thalabert is a perennial bargain from one of the world’s great estates – Paul Jaboulet Aîné. There are few producers in the Rhône valley that are more famous and iconic than Jaboulet. In great vintages their wines are rightfully considered amongst the finest wines produced in the world.
This fabulous wine is always great value for money. However, it looks remarkable value in outstanding vintages such as 2015. The Wine Advocate’s Jeb Dunnuck says “The 2015 reds from the Northern Rhône are truly spectacular and this vintage rivals or surpasses the 2010s and 2009s.”
The Domaine de Thalabert estate has belonged to Jaboulet since 1834 and is some 40 hectares in size. The wine’s complexity is thanks to vines averaging 50 years in age and the richness and roundness comes from small heat-retaining pebbles in the soil – a geological similarity (albeit on a smaller scale) to the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region.
Today we are delighted to be able to offer the newly released 2015 vintage of this superb wine. Jeb Dunnuck calls it “…a big, serious, full bodied effort that’s reminiscent of a slightly softer version of the 2010.”
Not only is this a superb wine with great pedigree, it is available for a song at just £196 per 12 bottles in bond.
Minimum Order – 1 case or 3 double magnums
This wine will be available for delivery from November onwards

The 2015 reds from the Northern Rhône are truly spectacular and this vintage rivals or surpasses the 2010s and 2009s. Brought up in a mix of tronconique tanks and Burgundy barrels (20% being new), the 2015 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert is a big, serious, full-bodied effort that’s reminiscent of a slightly softer version of the 2010. Scorched earth, black fruits, cassis, black olive and a hint of graphite all emerge from this sensational Crozes Hermitage. You’ll need to forget bottles for 4-5 years, but it will have over two decades of longevity.
