A word about the domain
Since 1979, Odile and Alain Jaume have been perpetuating the family tradition of winemaking by creating the Domain Grand Veneur. From 9 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape at the beginning, it has now about 80 hectares across all the Southern Rhône, including several Village appellations like Cairanne, Lirac or Gigondas.
Their sons Christophe and Sebastien have since joined them to make the Domain Grand Veneur one of the most successful family domains in the region and with a total respect of the vines and nature when it comes to winemaking.

About the wine:
Robert Parker: 88-90 (Wine Advocate #209 Oct 2013)
"A new wine for this estate and a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah aged mostly in concrete tank, the Alain Jaume 2012 Cairanne offers a generous, textured and fruit-loaded personality to go with notions of leafy herbs, lavender and sweet blackberry fruit. This easy-drinking wine should be consumed over the coming handful of years. Drink 2014-2018."
