Grenache noir, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre
Award-winning Côtes du Rhône for everyday enjoyment, with great complexity.
The color is a red garnet with purple-tinged.
The aromatic range of the nose goes from fresh berries (wild raspberry, blackcurrant, blackberry) to spices.
The palate is big and full‐flavored, with silky‐smooth tannins and berry aromas.
The finish is smooth and clean, introducing touches of pepper.
Particularly pleasant with spicy foods, and barbequed meats.
The classic Rhône to enjoy slightly fresh, but not cold, best poured around 62° to 65°F.

This Côtes du Rhône is made from various types of soils, but it mostly comes from limestone terraces with sand and red clay. This gives the “Reserve” an extraordinary richness and complexity with a Mediterranean style.
History: 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 characteristic 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.
