Winemaker's Notes:

Deep and brilliant, purple-red color. An exciting nose with aromas of black fruit (blackcurrant, cherry), spices and vanilla. This great aromatic complexity is found on the palate - the spices and ripe fruit appear with an elegant woodiness and harmonious tannins. The finish has good aromatic length and introduces a touch of licorice and peppers. A terrific Chateauneuf du Pape with great concentration and finesse.

It will accompany game, red meat, or meat in sauce, as well as strong cheeses.

Blend: 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre

About Domaine Grand Veneur:

In 1320 Pope Jean XXII planted the first vines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but it was only in 1360 that the wines of the region first gained fame. Oddly, the wine that gave Châteauneuf-du-Pape its reputation was the Blanc and not the Rouge. The white wine was a favorite of Pope Innocent VI. Domaine Grand Veneur dates back to 1826 having been founded at that time by Mathieu Jaume. Since 1979, Alain Jaume has run the Domaine and now has the help of his two sons: Sébastien and Christophe.
