This ambitious estate with considerable holdings across the Southern Rhone is run by the Jaume family, who also own a large negociant business and are known for their excellent value wines from various appellations.

The Jaume family planted their first vines in Grand Veneur, in the north of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in 1826, however for over a hundred years the yields were mainly sold. This changed in 1979, when the fifth generation of winemakers, Alain and Odile Jaume, stepped in with the goal to produce top quality estate-bottled wine.

Today, Alain Jaume’s two sons, Sébastien and Christophe, are at the helm of this remarkable estate which holds around 90 hectares of vineyards in Côtes du Rhône, Lirac, Vacqueyras and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and ” releases a massive lineup of high quality wines from throughout the Southern Rhône … At the end of the day, you can’t go wrong here and the portfolio is packed with both quality and value “(Jeb Dunnuck). The domaine’s range includes white cuvées based on Clairette and Roussanne, as well as the red wines made from the typical Southern Rhone trio of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Among their most renowned cuvées are Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines which comes from a plot with 65-year old vines, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes sourced from the terroir’s oldest vines, some of them being more than a century old.
