Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

The "Cuvee Tradition," also known on occasion as the "Secret de Gabriel" (in honor of Paul Jeune's father) is produced solely from old vines of minimum age of 60 years and is sourced from at least 85% Grenache (the percentage frequently exceeds 90%). The "Cuvee Tradition" undergoes a long fermentation that can extend to 40 days. This cuvee is aged in a mixture of small and large oak barrels and is bottled, without filtration, approximately two years after harvest. The "Cuvee Tradition" ("Secret de Gabriel") is produced in limited quantity and only in vintages considered to be outstanding.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby. Powerfully scented aromas of kirsch, black raspberry, licorice and herbs, with a suave mineral undertone. Fresh, sharply defined red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, displaying a sappy, gently chewy character. The finish repeats the floral note and leaves sweet red berry notes behind. This is all about fruit today and should gain in complexity with time in bottle. "
