The big northern Rhône Valley wine merchant Delas, now owned by Champagne Deutz, recently bought the family Jaboulet’s beautiful estate in the centre of Tain l’Hermitage. The houses are to be renovated and the winery will be demolished and rebuilt again, in a more modern style. Jaboulet was run by the Jaboulet family from 1834 to 2006 when it was bought by the Frey family.
Jaboulet’s old manor house will be used by Delas for tastings and to receive customers. The new winery is expected to be ready for harvest in 2017. The Hermitage and Crozes Hermitage wines will be vinified there. Delas will keep their facility on the other side of the river, near Tournon. Most of Delas’ wines are made of purchased grapes but they also own 28 hectares of vineyards in Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage. Read more on vitisphere.com
