Full-bodied white wine, with brilliant, deep, and clean color.
A very intense nose of flowers, white peach, and pear.
On the palate, aromas are expressed with balance and amazing freshness.
A great example of Rhone white, single grape “Viognier”. Blanc De Viognier provides the right balance to suit just about any discriminating palette.
Blanc de Viognier pairs marvelously with a wide variety of seafood and shellfish dishes, roasted or grilled chicken, fried pork chops. It particularly enhances spicy flavors such as those found in Chamorro and Asian cuisine, especially coconut-based dishes such as Kadon Pika, chicken Kelaguen or Thai curries. Viognier is also delicious with select vegetable and salad courses and of course hard or soft cheese.
To be enjoyed young but can age for 3‐5 years. To be served at 45°C.
History and soil type:
Established in the northern part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Jaume family has been dedicated to the art of wine growing since 1826.
In the 14th century, during their stay in Avignon, the popes built a papal castle in Châteauneuf-du-Pape (“New castle of the Popes”). Impressed by the area's exceptional “terroir” (the soil and its growing conditions), they planted vineyards around the castle on terraces covered with distinctive large smooth rounded stones, which get very hot during the day in the hot sun, and keep the vine roots warm during the cold nights, providing perfect condition for wine grapes .
The Domaine Grand Veneur Viognier vineyard is located next to the single vineyard “Les Champauvins”, featuring the famed large stones which provides this bold white wine its unique character. Soils are made of clay and sand with limestone.
