Wine Region:Rhône - France
Grape: 65% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre and Syrah.
Tasting notes: "The lurid purple 2019 Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail boasts impressive raspberry aromas, plus hints of dark chocolate, Provençal herbs and espresso. A Grenache-based blend with small amounts of Mourvèdre and Syrah, it's full-bodied but vibrant, with supple tannins and an almost creamy mouthfeel, but also bright acids that keep the wine fresh on the finish." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93/100.
About the winery: In 1979, Alain and Odile Jaume carried on the family tradition with the creation of the Grand Veneur. At the beginning, the vineyard extended over 22 acres. Over time, the vineyard grew to today's figure of nearly 170 acres spread in the Chateauneuf du Pape, Lirac, Cotes de Rhone Villages "Les Champauvins", and Cotes du Rhone areas.
In 2003, a new estate of 50 acres was acquired : the "Clos de Sixte" Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée Lirac. This appellation located a few kilometres from Chateauneuf du Pape (in front of it when you cross the Rhone river), is one of the fifteen Crus of the Rhône Valley. However, the soils are unique and they look like the plateaux of Chateauneuf du Pape with sandy-clay earth and the famous rocks that cover the soil. For many years, Lirac had less reputation than Chateauneuf du Pape, but it is potentially the coming "Outsider" of the Rhone Valley.
Over the years, the family has grown, too. Today, Sébastien and Christophe are gradually taking charge of the management of the estate. Sharing the family know-how, they have to put to maximum advantage their knowledge in wine-growing and wine-tasting.
