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."

This Ventoux is a great bottle to start discovering the Southern Rhône area. Elaborated from a blend of Grenache and Syrah, it exhibits a nose of fresh red and black fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant). The palate is smooth with soft tannins, delicate fruity flavours and a nice peppery touch. A lovely wine to drink with a simple meat dish like a beef burger...

“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.

Made from a specific parcel with ideal soils for white grapes, this wine is a pure expression of the Viognier, a highly aromatic grape grown in the Rhône valley. Very classy with subtle aromas of white peach, pear and flowers, keeping enough minerality to provide a good balance. Try it on a goat cheese, you will love it.

Lirac is an appellation located just opposite Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the Rhône Valley. It is known to produce wines which are similar to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, without the price tag. Clos de Sixte is THE reference in Lirac. It boasts delicious aromas of wild blackberries and some red fruit. Palate is round and spicy, and the finish is surprisingly long....

"Vieilles Vignes" is a cuvée made from the oldest vines of the estate and among the finest wines produced in France. The concentration provided by the very low yielding old vines is simply amazing here! This full-bodied, black and oaky Chateauneuf has an astonishing complexity with rich flavours of black fruit, cherry, spices and vanilla.
