Antoine Jaboulet founded his company in 1834, in Tain-l’Hermitage. His sons Paul and Henri succeeded him, then it was the turn of Louis, Paul’s son. Then came Gérard, Louis’ son, and finally, from 1997, Michel Jaboulet, Gérard’s cousin, who took over the reins of the estate until 2006 when the house was bought by the Frey group, owner of vineyards in Champagne and Bordeaux. It is oenologist Caroline Frey who now manages a house with a reputation that was already established but which is serenely returning to an excellent level.
Since 2013, the Jaboulet vineyard is officially in conversion to organic farming.
