The name for this wine originates from the 45th North parallel, which runs two kilometres from the domaine’s cellars near Tain L’Hermitage.


Since the early 19th Century, Paul Jaboulet Ainé has been synonymous with quality wine in the Rhône Valley. Jaboulet’s Hermitages – white and red – and most of their upper wines – are the stuff of legend. The famous Rhone winery was bought by the Frey family in 2006. The Freys, owners of Chateau la Lagune in Bordeaux, saw the potential of the vineyards. They brought renewed energy to this corner of France and to one of its greatest names.


Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"It is elegant, fruity and full-bodied and brings together the Grenache and Syrah in a rather more powerful, spicy (yet balanced) form than we find with most Côtes du Rhône. The nose is characterized by notes of black fruit, exotic spices (curry and sandalwood) with a rounded and delicate mouthfeel.

Soils: Shingle with clay, stony “argillaceous limestone” soil, pebbles. Traditional vinification with long vatting, controlled fermentation temperatures. Aged 75% in stainless steel tanks, 25% in large French oak vats for 12 months."


4 ½ Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Offering great drinkability, but also well worth cellaring, this blend of grenache and syrah has a fragrant, slightly raisiny bouquet. From vines averaging 35 years old, it is sturdy (14% alc/vol), with strong, ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, a hint of liquorice, and a finely balanced, smooth finish."
