WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING

In the 14th century, during their stay in Avignon, the popes built a papal castle in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Impressed by the area's exceptional “terroir”, they planted vineyards around the castle on terraces covered with smooth rounded pebbles. Established in the northern part of Châteauneuf du Pape, the Jaume family has been dedicated to the art of wine growing since 1826. This venerable profession is their legacy, but above all it is their passion, requiring discipline, perseverance and a respect for nature and the challenges she presents them with. Their aim, as skilled wine growers, is to produce, carefully and lovingly, wines that are intense, rich and complex and that reflect and embody the wonderful terroir of the southern Rhône Valley.
Soil type: The Côtes du Rhône is made from various type of soils, but it mostly comes from limestone terraces with sand and red clay. This give to the “Reserve” an extraordinary richness and complexity with a mediteranean style.
Grape variety: Grenache noir, Syrah, Cinsault, mourvèdre
