Côtes du Rhône Rouge Réserve Grand Veneur 2015 - Alain Jaume & Fils


“One of my favorite Côtes du Rhône” - Robert Parker. This medium-bodied Côtes du Rhône is made by Domaine Grand Veneur, one of the best producers in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Just simple and delicious, with aromas of red and black fruit and silky tannins, there is excellent value for money here. We particularly love the complex peppery finish and it’s probably one of the best choice in the Côtes du Rhône appellation.

87/100 "The 2015 Cotes du Rhone Reserve is a fruity, forward and juicy effort that has lots of classic Southern Rhone meatiness, peppery herbs, lavender and red and black fruits in its charming, medium-bodied personality. It has excellent purity, is balanced, elegant and best drunk over the coming couple of years."

  

15.5/20 "Vivid mid crimson. Juicy jujube fruit, a bit like throat sweets. Soft and juicy on the palate. Bright, zesty, simple and alive with fruit zest. Softly textured but fresh. (JH)" (previous vintage)

87/100 "Fresh and focused, with a beam of cassis and cherry preserves underscored by a light mineral thread and backed by floral and sandalwood notes. Drink now." (previous vintage)

87/100 "This wine is superripe and fruit-forward, loaded with black cherry and plum fruit. It might even be a bit warm on the palate, but ends on a supple, silky note. Drink now–2020." (previous vintage)
