DOMAINE GRAND VENEUR - ALAIN JAUME
Since 1826, the Jaume family decided to cultivate the vines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but it is above all since 1979, thanks to Alain Jaume, that the estate has experienced a real boom, with the creation of the Grand Veneur estate. Covering 78 hectares on both sides of the Rhône, the family produces Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueyras and Lirac. Benefiting from one of the most beautiful terroirs in the region, the children, Sébastien and Christophe, take up the torch with dignity, working to ensure the prosperity of the estate through sustainable cultivation and meticulous work resulting in rich and powerful wines, but not devoid of finesse.
