2017 Domaine Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Blanc de Viognier - 90 pts - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"A beautiful wine, the 2017 Côtes du Rhône Blanc de Viognier has classic white peach and honeysuckle aromas and flavors. Elegant, silky, and balanced, it’s another outstanding white from this talented team.


There are few better run estates in the world than that of the Jaume Family’s Domaine Grand Veneur. Located in the northern part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and run today by brothers Christophe and Sebastien Jaume, the estate produces a quasi-modern style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape (their Les Origins and Vieilles Vignes) as well as a growing number of negociant based wines from throughout the Southern Rhône. The 2017s whites are terrific across the board, and this vintage has produced charming, pure wines that are already drinking beautifully. The 2016 reds are some of the finest I’ve tasted from this estate."

2015 Domaine Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Blanc de Viognier - 90 pts - WA

wa90"The outstanding 2015 Cotes du Rhone Blanc de Viognier is another killer value. Ample notes of tangerine, crushed rocks, flowers and crisp white peach soar from the glass of this layered, medium-bodied, classy and lengthy white that has both freshness and richness. Drink it over the coming year. - Jeb Dunnuck"

2013 Domaine Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Blanc de Viognier - 87 pts - WA - RP

wa"One of my favorite estates in Châteauneuf du Pape (an area now being brilliantly covered by my colleague Jeb Dunnuck), Domaine Grand Veneur is internationally recognized for their fabulous Châteauneuf du Papes, but they also produce some terrific values. The estate wines are sold under the Grand Veneur label, but they have also started a négociant business under the name Alain Jaume. Those wines have been very promising as well. The 2013 Blanc de Viognier is 100% Viognier bottled six months after the harvest. One of the least-expensive, high-quality Viogniers in the market, it offers up white peach, apricot marmalade, mango and spring flower notes. Medium-bodied and dry, the 2013 is slightly lighter than previous vintages, but will offer tasty drinking over the next several years. - Robert Parker"
