ABOUT THE WINE

“Les Champauvins” plots are classified Côtes-du-Rhône, though they lie on the northern border of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, just 3 meters outside the appellation. Here soils are made of red clay and pebbled stones of quartz.
The quantity of rocks can be amazing, as they can completely cover the soil.
In summer and during the day, the rocks temperature will increase to 55°C, and this accumulated heat will return to the vines at night. Day after day, this unique phenomenon allows the grapes to reach a perfect maturity and produce a unique wine.

Appellation Côtes-du-Rhône
Varietal(s) 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre
Vinification
Traditional winemaking in stainless steel vats. Grenache is
aged in concrete vats; Syrah and Mourvèdre in four-year-old
barrels.
Soil Type Red clay & pebbled quartz
Farming Organic
ABV 15%


RATINGS :

Wine Enthusiast :92 pts + Editors’ Choice : "Sourced from a plot just a stone's throw from Chateauneuf du Pape, Les Champauvins is consistently one of the best Cotes-du-Rhone bottlings available. Heady aromas of lilac and crushed white pepper introduce a palate that's powerful, yet pure in fruit."

Jeb Dunnuck : 91-93 pts : "The Grenache dominated (there is 30% Syrah) 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Les Champauvins is perfect for readers looking for a wine that over-delivers and won’t break the bank. A great nose of black cherries, currants, roasted garrigue, licorice, and Provençal spice notes gives way to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, balanced, straight-up terrific and pleasure-bent Côtes du Rhône that will deliver the goods for 4-6 years."

Wine Advocate : 91 pts : "the bottled 2019 Cotes du Rhone les Champauvins is another successful vintage for this perennial overachiever. Mulberries and raspberries appear on the nose, while the full-bodied, softly dusty palate is concentrated and pure, finishing on long-lasting notes of red berries and salted licorice."
About Domaine Grand Veneur Estate
The 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
