Cotes du Rhone Reserve Blanc, Domaine Grand Veneur
The Jaume family have been making wine here since 1826 and still own the same vineyards; some of the vines are now over 100 years old. Christophe Jaume is the sixth generation of his family to make wine at this domaine. Covering nearly 50 hectares, the domaine has plots in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du-Rhône Villages, Côtes-du-Rhône and Lirac. Their vineyards are planted with Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre for the reds and Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Roussanne for the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, and this excellent white Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc. The family believe in maintaining the harmony between the grape and the soil and so they farm organically; their vineyards achieved organic certification in 2012.
This is, rich and juicy but with great freshness and a long, lingering finish.
The juicy stone fruit flavours make this a really good match with pork dishes.
