Alain Jaume

Alain Jaume

In the 14th century, Pope John XXII built a palace in the village of Châteauneuf. He and his heirs, impressed by the exceptional terroir, planted vineyards around the castle on terraces covered with smooth rounded limestone pebbles. Thus was born one of the most famous and valued appeals in the world: Châteauneuf du Pape. The Jaume family has been dedicated to the art of making wine since 1826. Alain Jaume wines have a huge potential to age and are rich, rich and complex. They reflect and embody the superb terroir of the southern Rhone Valley.

Rhone Valley

Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley is a long, narrow strip in the south of France. In practice, this region is divided into two sub-regions, each with its own type and identity - North and South Rhone. The northern part is best known for its legendary and long-lasting red wines, mainly from Syrah grapes: Hermitage, Ivory Coast, St. Joseph and Cornas, as well as the fragrant white Viognier from Condrieu. The south is home to the full Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, as well as the light Rose of Tavel. Chateauneuf-du-Pape can be a blend of up to 13 different varieties, 3 of which are even white. This is the main difference between it and Gigondas, where white varieties in the blend are not allowed. The most famous of these main red varieties are Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault, and the white ones are Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier.

Viognier

Viognier is a white grape variety used to produce rich wines with pronounced aromas of stone fruit, but can also be very herbal, with aromas of chamomile, lavender, thyme and even a hint of pine. At the end of the 1960s, the Viognier plantations numbered only 14 hectares - mainly located around Condrieu and Château-Grillet. The variety is difficult to grow, has a naturally low acidity. At the same time, it requires a lot of sunshine to ripen properly, but if there is too much heat, it accumulates sugars quickly and due to the high alcohol content, the final wine loses the apricot tones in its aromatic profile. Despite these difficulties in cultivation, after the late 70s of last century, various winemakers around the world began to experiment with it - mailny in Australia and the United States. Today, Viognier is enjoying a remarkable renaissance, with even increasing areas in France, and is also grown in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the United States, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and even Japan. The variety performs quite well when fermented in oak barrels, in which case the herbal aromas are softened and shades of honey and vanilla are added to them. Interestingly, Vionnier is allowed and used in the Côte-Rôtie appellation for co-fermentation with Syrah. The allowed addition is up to 20% and actually it contributes significantly to improving the profile of the final wine.
