If you want a taste of tradition, this is a rare opportunity. The Chastan family has been making resolutely old-school Rhone wines since the 1950s, and the winemaking is essentially unchanged.  The wines are made with whole clusters of grapes (rather than modern destemming the bunches), which gives a rustic touch (think Cornas meets Chateauneuf).
 
At Domaine de la Jaufrette, everything moves at a different pace – that is to say, slowly. The vineyards are farmed organically. Everything is aged in tank and barrel for 2-3 years before bottling, and then for at least another 2 years in bottle before release…..and much longer for these bottles of 1995. As a result, these wines take time before they reach their peak – and the 1995 is at that perfect place where the balance of fruit and earthiness turns transendant.
 
These are the last bottles of an epic wine, and a great way to discover Domaine de la Jaufrette. If you’re looking for rare and special to add to your cellar, this is a don’t miss.
