Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2007

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

From the Jaume familyandrsquo;s 123-acre estate, this is an opulent Chandacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape, lush floral notes highlighting its sweet, clear cassis flavors. It finishes with a sense of stoniness, savory and firm, drinkable now and cellarable for the next ten or so years.

Domaine Grand Veneur:
In 1320, Pope Jean XXII had the first vines planted in CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE. But only in 1360 did the vine acquire a certain importance, first with the white wine drunk by Innocent VI, then with red wine; but these products remained little known.

In 1320, Pope Jean XXII had the first vines planted in CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE. But only in 1360 did the vine acquire a certain importance, first with the white wine drunk by Innocent VI, then with red wine; but these products remained little known. Only from the 18th century onward, did the vine occupy the territory and papal wine begin to be famous. In the Jaume family, the generations have perpetuated the profession of winegrower since Mathieu JAUME decided, in 1826, to grow vines in CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE. The successions were assumed by Marius, Fernand and Roger. In 1979, Alain and Odile JAUME carried on the family tradition with the creation of the GRAND VENEUR WINERY. At the beginning, the vineyard extended over 22 acres. Over time, the vineyard grew to today's figure of nearly 135 acres spread in the CHÂTEAUNEUF DU PAPE, LIRAC, CÔTES DU RHÔNE VILLAGES "Les Champauvins", and CÔTES DU RHÔNE areas. In 2003, a new estate of 35 acres was acquired: the "CLOS DE SIXTE" Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée LIRAC. This appellation located 10 kilometres from Châteauneuf du Pape, is one of the thirteen Crus of the Rhône Valley. Over the years, the family has grown, too. Today, Sébastien and Christophe are gradually taking charge of the management of the estate. Sharing the family know-how, they have to put to maximum advantage their knowledge in wine-growing and wine-tasting. Read less

Bright purple. Exotically perfumed nose displays scents of fresh blackberry, white pepper, incense and potpourri. Lush and creamy on the palate, with sweet dark berry flavors supported by slow-mounting tannins. The peppery note repeats on the focused, brisk finish.

A sleeper of the vintage, the 2006 Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape is a seductive effort offering plenty of earth, tapenade, and spice as well as black cherry and cassis fruit. Deep, full-bodied, rich, chewy, and totally seductive, it can be enjoyed over the next decade.

A blockbuster and a terrific example of Chateauneuf du Pape in a more challenging and irregular vintage is the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape. Deep purple to the rim with a gloriously flamboyant nose of black raspberry jam, kirsch, smoke, and licorice, the wine has dazzling concentration, pushes ripeness to the limit (note the flavors of figs) but pulls back with impressive purity and balance as well as plenty of force and resistance. This is a supple, opulent style of Chateauneuf du Pape to drink over the next decade or more.

The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape possesses sweet black cherry fruit, medium body, surprising lushness for the vintage, layers of concentrated fruit, and excellent texture. Enjoy this sexy, forward, deep ruby/purple-colored effort during its first decade of life. It is another example of how far proprietor Alain Jaume has pushed this estatersquo;s quality over the last four vintages.

Ruby-red. Mineral-driven aromas of strawberry, cherry and tobacco. Snappy red fruit flavors show good depth and clarity, with silky tannins adding shape. In fact, the red fruit finish seems a touch hard.

Full bodied and lushly textured, this is a top example of an affordable Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape. Raspberry and briary notes mingle easily on the nose, while the palate adds in hints of garrigue, spice and vanilla. Long, velvety and spice-laden on the finish.
