In 2006, the Freys, a family of long standing in the Champagne region and owners of Chateau La Lagune in Bordeaux took over Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné. Caroline Frey, who has a degree in oenology from Bordeaux, works with her teams in a single minded quest for perfection. Their cutting-edge winemaking, combined with the scrupulous care given to vines grown in exceptional terroirs, encourages one to believe that the greatest vintages are yet to come. The vineyards acquired in the appellations of Côte Rôtie, Condrieu and Chateauneuf du Pape are following in the historic Maison Jaboulet tradition. Under Caroline’s leadership the vineyards have earned sustainable farming status while the winegrowing is slowly but surely moving towards biodynamic certification.
