« I was able to taste all of he 2012s multiple times, scoring them the same in all cases. The classic Châteauneuf du Pape has beautiful purity and elegance in its sweet black cherry, black raspberry, licorice and toasted-spice aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, perfectly balanced and ripe, with good acidity and tannin, it can be consumed anytime over the coming decade. » (Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2015) : 14,5/20 (Bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 1*Star (A reliable production, recommendable, in line with expectations from the appellation(s))

About this wine : Velouté, chaleureux, notes de café, alcool bien présent, charnu mais simple.

About the vineyard : Figure incontournable de Châteauneuf-du-Pape et de Tavel, Alain Jaume évolue en famille autour d’un négoce de très grande qualité tout comme de très belles vignes en Châteauneuf-du-Pape et Côtes du Rhône en propriété. Leur principal sujet de fierté est le vin du grand-veneur, châteauneuf classique. Le clos de Sixte, la propriété familiale située à Tavel, offre une belle image du cru tandis qu’à Châteauneuf-du-Pape, la cuvée de vieilles-vignes s’inscrit dans les plus beaux vins de l’appellation. La destinée du domaine est brillamment assurée par les enfants d’Alain Jaume.

Wine rated : 16/20 (Très bon)
Vineyard rated : 4*Étoiles (Production de très grande qualité)

About this wine : Avec sa robe concentrée et son nez gourmand et sensuel, ce vin cache bien son jeu. La trame est déjà complexe, alliant notes fruitées, florales, fumées et épicées. Souple et riche en attaque, la trame se resserre sur une structure virile et tannique. Vin de garde.

About the vineyard : Au sein de la famille Jaume, on est vignerons "...depuis que Mathieu Jaume, en 1826, décida de cultiver la vigne à Châteauneuf-du-Pape". Odile et Alain Jaume et leurs fils, Christophe et Sébastien, sont aujourd'hui à la tête d'un vignoble de 70 hectares (domaine Grand Veneur, Clos de Sixte) décliné également en appellations Lirac et Côtes du Rhône. Le grenache noir et la syrah dominent logiquement l'encépagement. Le domaine a entamé un cheminement vers l'agriculture bio en 2009.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the largest, oldest, and most famous wine zone in the Côtes du Rhône. In the 14th century the papacy moved to Avignon, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape was chosen as the papal summer residence. The popes residing here—and John XII in particular—fostered wine production in the area and developed the vineyards. Production conditions are a constant throughout the ...
