Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Rose Reserve
Alain Jaume ( Grand Veneur )
France - Rhone Valley - Cotes du Rhone AOC

Salmon-pink color, clear and brilliant. The nose is fruity and spicy, reminiscent of wild strawberry and fine Provencal spices. The palate is full, well-balanced and fruity, with a long, fresh finish. A beautiful and delicate rose which is a great example from the Rhone.

2018 Reserve Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône Rosé - EXCEPTIONAL - WP

2018 Reserve Grand Veneur Côtes du Rhône Rosé - EXCEPTIONAL - WP

wplogo"Unusually low in acidity, this rosé gave off a first impression of softness rather than the racy refreshment we tend to expect from this type of wine. But the second impression quickly took over, then the third and so on, as a fruit basket of flavors revealed itself. My palate seemed to be strolling through a Provençal hill town on market day, drinking in the sights, smells and savors of fresh strawberries, raspberries and wildflowers. ABV: 13 percent. - Dave McIntyre"

"jeb dunnuck logo 250The 2018 Côtes Du Rhône Rosé reveals a light, Provençal color as well as notes of white peach, citrus, and tangerines. It shows a touch of salty minerality on the finish, is light and quaffable, and beautifully balanced. In short, it's a terrific Provençal style rosé to drink over the coming summer months."

"vinous logoLimpid orange-pink. Aromas and flavors of strawberry and tangerine, accompanied by subtle herbal and floral notes in the background. Supple and broad on the palate, delivering solid thrust. Warm red fruit notes cling to the finish. In an easygoing style and not lacking for heft. - Josh Raynolds"

wa90"Light pink in color, the 2014 Cotes du Rhone Rose Reserve is a terrific effort that offers lots of strawberry, peach and cherry blossom aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, supple and beautifully textured, yet with good acidity, it shows the more fruity, forward nature of the 2014 vintage perfectly. It represents a fabulous value in rose, should be bought by the case, and enjoyed over the coming 6-12 months. - Jeb Dunnuck"

wa300"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.
Lovers of rosé should check out the blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20% Cinsault, the 2013 Côtes du Rhône Rosé Réserve. This crisp, flinty rosé possesses strawberry and cranberry notes intermixed with a hint of watermelons, and a light-bodied mouthfeel. Drink now. - Robert Parker"

Dry and focused on the palate, offering tangy red fruit and citrus zest flavors that spread out with air.

Wine Advocate 90 Pts"An absolutely brilliant wine is their 2011 Cotes du Rhone Rose Reserve, a blend of 60% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Cinsault. Notes of Provencal herbs and vivid strawberry jam intermixed with some kirsch are all present in this surprisingly full-bodied yet lively, ethereal rose that is about as strong an effort in the rose wine market as one can find for under $15 a bottle."
