Brødrene scorede 100 point (!) for deres chateauneuf i 2010-årgangen hos Parker!
Parker “Along the same lines, yet slightly richer, the Alain Jaume 2012 Cotes du Rhone Reserve gives up more dark fruit, graphite and earthy notes to go with a medium-bodied, rich and beautifully textured feel on the palate. It, too, should dish out plenty of pleasure over the coming couple of years and represents a superb value. Drink now-2017.
Covering 30 acres in Chateauneuf du Pape (over 100 acres in Cotes du Rhone, Lirac, Vacqueyras and Gigondas), Domaine Grand Veneur is run by the incredibly talented Sebastien and Christophe Jaume. The style here, if looked at as a whole, is more traditional than not, with plenty of tank and stainless steel, yet their Chateauneuf du Papes are distinctly modern and spent plenty of time in small barrels. However, they never lose their Southern Rhone typicity, have gorgeous purity and also possess balanced, age-worthy profiles. These are some of the most exciting wines coming out of the region and they should not be missed! Note: the estate bottlings are released under the Domaine Grand Veneur label, and the negociant wines are released under the Alain Jaume et Fils label. The 2012 whites from the Jaume brothers are incredibly strong.”
Det er utroligt, hvad Jaume-brødrene hos Grand Veneur kan vride ud af deres gamle grenache-vinstokke! Tætte, saftige vine med blød jordbærfrugt og kirsebærlikør krydret med lidt skov og frisk peber. Her en magtfuld Cotes du Rhone i pragtårgangen 2015 – vinmageri i særklasse fra de to Jaume-brødre.
