Alain Jaume & Fils Domaine Grand Veneur Les Champauvins Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

$22.99

94 Points - great discovery                                                 A fantastic discovery from France that sells for a song!  Full-bodied and dense, the Alain Jaume Domaine Grand Veneur 2016 Cotes du Rhone tastes more like a "baby Châteauneuf." A complete wine, rich and elegant, thanks to the harmony of all the elements which make it up. Highly recommended. 94 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the finest vintages of this cuvée to date, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Les Champauvins (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre) is a brilliant, sexy, medium to full-bodied Côtes du Rhône that offers a spectacular bouquet of garrigue, peppery herbs, pine, and sweet red and black fruits. With beautiful complexity, a layered, seamless texture, notable tannins, and a great finish, it easily competes with any number of more expensive Châteauneuf-du-Papes and Gigondas. It’s great today yet will keep for 7-8 years." 92 Points Robert Parker: "Now that it's in the bottle, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone les Champauvins is looking as good as I predicted last year. It's a full-bodied, concentrated wine that could mop the floor with many Châteauneufs. Rich black cherry fruit is joined by complex herb and spice notes, a creamy mid-palate and a lingering finish. Worth buying by the case."

One of the more voluptuous, powerful Cote de Rhones, this is a concentrated super powerful wine. Black plum liqueur and blackberry mix with spice and lots of ABV. I like the big, powerful style, but I can see that it might not be for everyone. 2016 vintage on Mar 22, 2020

January 18, 2020. Ice storm, what to do? Let’s try this CDR! This is a beautiful wine, medium - full bodied, rich red fruit - raspberry, cherry that does not overpower, plus a nice kick of pepper but not too much. Nice structure and finish. Yummy. Great price point for this wine.
