Alain Jaume

In 1979, Alain and Odile Jaume carried on the family tradition with the creation of the Grand Veneur. At the beginning, the vineyard extended over 22 acres. Over time, the vineyard grew to today's figure of nearly 170 acres spread in the Chateauneuf du Pape, Lirac, Cotes de Rhone Villages "Les Champauvins", and Cotes du Rhone areas.

In 2003, a new estate of 50 acres was acquired : the "Clos de Sixte" Appellation d'Origine Contr̫l̩e Lirac. This appellation located a few kilometres from Ch̢teauneuf du Pape (in front of it when you cross the Rhone river), is one of the fifteen Crus of the Rh̫ne Valley. However, the soils are unique and they look like the plateaux of Ch̢teauneuf du Pape with sandy-clay earth and the famous rocks that cover the soil. For many years, Lirac had less reputation than Ch̢teauneuf du Pape, but it is potentially the coming "Outsider" of the Rhone Valley.

Over the years, the family has grown, too. Today, S̩bastien and Christophe are gradually taking charge of the management of the estate. Sharing the family know-how, they have to put to maximum advantage their knowledge in wine-growing and wine-tasting.
