A Winner CDR From Alain Jaume! On Sale $11.99!
Domaine Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Villages
"Les Champauvins" 2005
Robert Parker 90 Pts
The Jaume family has been in the business of creating wine for generations - specifically since 1826, when Mathieu Jaume decided to plant vines in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. In 1979, Alain Jaume continued to carry on the tradition when he founded the Grand Veneur Winery.
Today, the winery encompasses 22 acres, spread out over Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Lirac, Cotes du Rhone Villages "Les Champauvins", and Cotes du Rhone. Today, the management of the estate is gradually being passed on to Jaume's sons, Sebastien and Christophe.
The "Les Champauvins" is a beautiful representation of wine from the Southern Rhone. We have consistently had great success with the 2005 vintage. After making a large purchase, our importer was able to offer us a lower price for the wine - which has allowed us to pass on the savings to you! With a regular price of $19.99, we can now offer this 90 Pt. beauty for $11.99!
If you wish to better acquaint yourself with wines from the Rhone, this is the one to experiment with! And, if you've tried the wine in the past, then you know it's a steal for $11.99!
