Winemaker's Notes:

Plump and forward with black cherry plum spice and mineral notes. Nice little grip on the back end.

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

The impressive 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape still sells for a song. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a big, sweet nose of cassis intermixed with cherries, blackberries, and resiny spice box/roasted herb notes. Textured, rich, and pure, with a sweet mid-palate, medium to full body, and an unctuous personality, this beauty will drink well for 10-12 years.

From vineyards on the terraced and pebbled slopes north of Auvignon, this wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre. It is a rich, full-flavored wine to serve with red meat, game or strong cheeses.

The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape's deep ruby/purple-tinged color is accompanied by a sumptuous bouquet of kirsch, cassis, licorice, and smoke. With great fruit, a terrific texture, medium to full body, and a heady, opulent, alcoholic finish, it should provide immense pleasure over the next 8-10 years.

Loaded with dark currant and blackberry fruit, this has sinew, muscle and flesh to its texture along with tar, grilled beef and mineral notes pumping through the finish. Best from 2006 through 2020.

From the Jaume family's 123-acre estate, this is an opulent Châteauneuf-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.

Alain Jaume bought the Domaine Grand Veneur in 1979, and its reputation has been steadily increasing. This is a superbly perfumed wine, with great pure black currant fruits, layers of dry tannins and a firm, structured aftertaste.

Yummy red, with licorice, red berry and cherry jam character. Polished red, the wood nicely integrated, this is appealing but not very complex. Drink now through 2009.
