In 1979, Odile and Alain Jaume created Domaine Grand Veneur. Expansion efforts over the years means that the domaine has gone from 9 hectares to 78 hectares in some of the most prestigious appellations of the southern Rhône: Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Lirac and Côtes-du-Rhône. The family has also expanded: now it is Sébastien and Cristophe who run this domaine with organic certification.
About the cuvée
This Châteauneuf-du-Pape comes from a blend of several plots that each have their own identity: the Bois de la Ville and les Serres provide very concentrated juice, Farguerol and Cansaud provide extreme aromatic richness thanks to the red clay and finally the chalk-rich soils of Cabrières and Revès give incredible structure to the wine. On the nose, red fruit prevail accompanied by a slight woodiness. On the palate, the tannins are melted and elegant. The length is exceptional and over time the aromas of sous-bois, leather or tobacco can evolve.
