Le Grand Pompée Saint-Joseph 2018
Le Grand Pompée is one of the cornerstones of Paul Jaboulet Aîné. 2018 was a warm vintage, but this famous estate maintained their classic elegance, creating a wonderful Saint-Joseph. Deep ruby red, this pure Syrah is dominated by ripe, red fruit character, with notes of sweet spices, liquorice and well-integrated wood. We love pairing all that red fruit with slow-cooked, tomato-based dishes.
Paul Jaboulet Aîné is a Rhône legend, producing one of France’s greatest wines, the iconic La Chapelle Hermitage. Their story begins with Antoine Jaboulet, who founded an estate and cellar in Tain l’Hermitage in 1934. He started with vines on the steep slopes of the famous Hermitage hill and began to expand into neighbouring Crozes-Hermitage. In 2006, the company was acquired by Jean-Jacques Frey, who brought substantial investment and a wealth of experience from running estates in Bordeaux (Château La Lagune), Burgundy and Champagne (the family sold Ayala to Bollinger and are part owners of the Harvey Nichols favourite, Billecart-Salmon). His daughter Caroline has now taken over and has thoroughly won over the critics. The estate is certified organic and broadly follows biodynamic principles with conversion a work in progress.
