Wine Region: Rhone Valley - Vacqueyras - France
Grape: 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre.
Tasting notes: Deep, intense hue. Aromas of fresh black fruit a little meaty, with dried herbs smells. On the palate, the richness of the tannins harmonizes with the smoothness of the wine. The finish is long, with spices aromas, licorice. A typical wine from this specific terroir called 'les Garrigues.'
Jeb Dunnuck 92 / 100
"The 2019 Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue is just about as good and has a more open-knit, supple, ready-to-go style. Provençal garrigue, pepper, flowers, sandalwood, and ripe red and black fruits dominate this bouquet, and it’s medium-bodied, with soft tannins and loads of charm. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years." - Jeb Dunnuck
About the Winery: The official history of Domaine Grand Veneur in the Southern Rhone Valley dates back to 1826 when the Jaume family first planted vines in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Jumping ahead from the early days of Mathieu Jaume to the modern era for Domaine Grand Veneur, five generations later in 1979, Alain Jaume and Odile Jaume took over the traditionally managed Domaine Grand Veneur.
In 1986, under the direction of Alain Jaume, Grand Veneur became perhaps the first estate in Chateauneuf-du-Pape to experiment with aging some grape varieties in new, French oak barrels. In those days, they owned 4.5 hectares of vines.
The Jaume family continued to make additional purchases in the appellation and managed to grow the Domaine and its vineyards to their current size. Alain Jaume Domaine Grand Veneur owns 16 hectares of vines in the Chateauneuf du Pape region. Aside from their vines in Chateauneuf du Pape, Domaine Grand Veneur has plantings in Lirac and in the Côtes du Rhone appellations.
