Why we think this is a classy wine to drink

Herbal Savoury Spice Pepper Black Fruits

  • Sourced from the Jaume family, owner and winemaker across 75 hectares of premium Rhone vineyards, including Vacqueyras. This is from the prestigious Les Garrigues area in Vacqueyras thus named 'Grande Garrigue'.
  • A sturdy, sultry blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre that was aged for 12 months in concrete vats and 3 year old oak barrels (so little oak flavour is imparted in the wine). This wine showcases the rich clay and stone soils of the region. A classic Vacqueyras with aromas of black cherries, plums, the typical garrigue and some licorice. The satiny taste is well balanced with the ripe tannins. A long finish with a spicy undertone.
  • Serve with stew, duck breast, or grilled meats.
  • The 2016 Southern Rhone vintage was rated 99 points by Wine Spectator magazine and 97 points by Wine Enthusiast magazine.

About The Winery

The Jaume family is famous in the Rhône region and wins medals and scores one after the other. It is a family that has been making its own wines since 1826. For a long time they only owned 9 hectares of vineyards, but now the company has grown into a 75-hectare domain.

They produce wines under the name of Domaine Grand Veneur, Clos Sixte and Alain Jaume. Based on their philosophy that 'great wine only comes from grapes that express the powers of the soil', each wine must optimally display its specific soil. The current generation, Sébastien and Christophe, drives a domain with very old vineyards and a very modern cellar. The best of both worlds.
