Opaque ruby. Expansive aromas of ripe red and blue fruits, smoky minerals and candied flowers pick up a spicy accent with air. Sweet and fleshy on the palate, offering pliant black raspberry and boysenberry flavors firmed by a spine of juicy acidity. Shows sharp clarity and floral-driven thrust on the clinging finish, which is framed by smooth, harmonious tannins.

Established in the northern part of Châteauneuf du Pape, the Jaume family has been dedicated to the art of wine growing since 1826. This venerable profession is our legacy, but above all it is our passion, requiring discipline, perseverance and a respect for nature and the challenges she presents us with. Every vintage is different from the last and we must skillfully adapt our growing techniques to the ever-changing behaviour of the vines, the grapes and the terroir. Our aim, as skilled wine growers, is to produce, carefully and lovingly, wines that are intense, rich and complex and that reflect and embody the wonderful terroir of the southern Rhône Valley. Our labels are stamped "Alain Jaume", with humility but also with a certain pride, as our name represents the guarantee of our constant commitment to your satisfaction.
