External Reviews for Domaine Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône
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.
