Paul Jaboulet Aîné has been a trend-setting grower and shipper in the Rhône since 1834. The Jaboulet company was founded by Antoine Jaboulet, and his twin sons, Paul and Henri continued to expand the family business. The elder son ("aîné" in French), Paul, established the company in its present form and gave it his own name. Since then, the company has been run by successive generations of sons from that side of the Jaboulet family.
The cuvee name, Pierre Aiguille, refers to the erosion-worn mountain that shelters the vineyards that are planted on the east-facing terraces of the jagged Dentelles de Monmirail. The vineyards here are over 40 years old and produce a very terroi-driven expression of the classic Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre blend.
