Winemaker's Notes:

Very intense in color, almost black. The nose reveals aromas of black fruits, like blackcurrant and cherry, spices and vanilla. The palate is very long and intense with fine tannins.

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.
