Alain Jaume Cotes du Rhone Rouge Haut de Brun

2019 Alain Jaume Cotes du Rhone Rouge Haut de Brun - 88 PTS - WA

wa89"The 2019 Cotes du Rhone Haut de Brun comes across as slightly darker and more concentrated than the 2018, showing hints of blueberries and black cherries mixing in with the raspberries and cherries. It's medium to full-bodied, shows some soft, velvety tannins, and displays admirable purity on the finish. - Joe Czerwinski"

2019 Alain Jaume Cotes du Rhone Rouge Haut de Brun - 89 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Mostly Grenache blended with roughly 30% Syrah, brought up all in tank, the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Haut De Brun is another terrific release from this estate that delivers loads of pleasure for not much buck. Impressive red and black fruits, notes of peppery garrigue, and earth, medium-bodied richness, and a juicy, gulpable style all make for a seriously good Côtes du Rhône to enjoy over the coming 3-5 years."

2018 Alain Jaume Cotes du Rhone Rouge Haut de Brun - 89 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2018 Côtes Du Rhône Haut De Brun also showed nicely, with a more fruit-driven style in its wild strawberry, raspberry, pepper, and floral-laced aromas and flavors. With wonderful purity of fruit, medium-bodied richness, and sweet tannins, it’s a terrific, frontend loaded 2018 to enjoy over the coming 2-4 years."

2017 Alain Jaume Cotes du Rhone Rouge Haut de Brun - 88-90 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Haut de Brun is in the same ballpark as the 2016, with a similar level of concentration, yet it has more dark fruits as well as good minerality. This medium-bodied, concentrated, fresh 2017 will keep for 7-8 years.


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."

2016 Alain Jaume Cotes du Rhone Rouge Haut de Brun - 90 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Moving to the reds under the Alain Jaume label, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Haut de Brun is a 70/30 split of Grenache and Syrah brought up in stainless steel and concrete. Black cherries, blackberries, peppery herbs, and ample spice notes give way to a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, lengthy beauty that shows the quality of this great vintage.
