About Our Ratings

Vacqueyras 2009 Grande Garrigue, Alain Jaume, Dom. Grand Veneur
The Domaine Grand Veneur is superb producer in the Southern Rhone Valley Alain Jaume and his two sons Christophe and Sébastien grow, produce and bottle outstanding Chateuaneuf du Papes, Cotes du Rhones and many other wines for around the region working with high quality, old vine vineyards. This Vacqueyras is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Cinsault and 5% Mourvèdre. Robert Parker scored it 91 points saying "The 2009 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue is much more backward, displaying a denser blue/purple color, thicker, richer blue and black fruits, and hints of kirsch, lavender, and garrigue. Still grapy and unformed, but loaded with potential given its depth of concentration and richness, it will benefit from another 2-3 months of bottle age, and keep for 5-8 years."

    Comments about Vacqueyras 2009 Grande Garrigue, Alain Jaume, Dom. Grand Veneur:

    This is really concentrated and dense for a Vacqueyras. Still a little jammy, but the dark fruit, peppery spice and savory notes are well integrated giving it nice structure and balance. Enjoyable now, but will certainly gain some sophistication over the next few years.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Pizza and Pasta
