Cotes du Rhone Villages Les Champauvins Domaine Grand Veneur 2014
Intense, brilliant garnet-red colour. It has aromas of underwood and ripe red berries, typical of the terroir. The tannin structure is elegant and smooth, and the finish is dominated by slight touches of spices and black pepper.
About the winemakerEstablished in the northern part of Chateauneuf du Pape, the Jaume family has been dedicated to the art of wine growing since 1826. The family still runs the company today. The cellars are located in Orange, just up the road from Chateauneuf du Pape. All the family’s wines are impressive, balancing sweet fruit with classic southern Rhone warmth and spice. As each vintage is so different from the last, they are constantly evolving their growing techniques to accommodate the ever-changing behaviour of the vines, grapes and terroir. Organic viticulture is in place in two of their vineyards, but across the board the health of the vines is paramount. Yields are low to keep the quality high, and their age-worthy reds capture the power and age-worthiness of the Rhone perfectly.
