"One of the finest vintages of this cuve to date, the 2016 Ctes du Rhne Les Champauvins (70 Grenache, 20 Syrah, and 10 Mourvdre) is a brilliant, sexy, medium to full-bodied Ctes du Rhne that offers a spectacular bouquet of garrigue, peppery herbs, pine, and sweet red and black fruits. With beautiful complexity, a layered, seamless texture, notable tannins, and a great finish, it easily competes with any number of more expensive Chteauneuf-du-Papes ... read more

With beautiful complexity, a layered, seamless texture, notable tannins, and a great finish, it easily competes with any number of more expensive Chteauneuf-du-Papes and Gigondas. Its great today yet will keep for 7-8 years."

Wine Advocate 92
"Now that it's in the bottle, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone les Champauvins is looking as good as I predicted last year. It's a full-bodied, concentrated wine that could mop the floor with many Chteauneufs. Rich black cherry fruit is joined by complex herb and spice notes, a creamy mid-palate and a lingering finish. Worth buying by the case."

Domaine Grand Veneur Estate

View all from Domaine Grand Veneur Estate
Domaine Grand Veneur EstateThe Domaine was founded by Mathieu Jaume in 1826. Alain Jaume now runs the Domaine with the help of his two sons Sébastien and Christophe. The estate is located in the commune of Orange and consists of 75 hectares. It covers four different appellations: Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes-du-Rhône Villages, Côtes-du-Rhône and Lirac. As of 2012 the estate is certified organic. "Grand Veneur is one of the most brilliant estates in Chateauneuf du Pape as well as the force behind the negociant wines sold under the Alain Jaume label. Virtually everything they produce has merit. I can't say enough about the job Alain Jaume's two sons, Sebastian and Christophe, have done with this estate. The impeccable attention to detail in the vineyards, the meticulous vinification, and the careful bottling benefit every consumer." ~ Robert Parker
