Domaine Grand Veneur, Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Fontaine 2015
The nose is rich in aromas of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, quince and honey, with a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the same aromas appear together with a fatness combining exotic fruit and vanilla. The wine is rich, generous and elegant, with extraordinary length. La Fontaine is often considerated to be one of the best Chateauneuf du Pape white, and it is by definition a superb gastronomy wine.
Best with fish dishes in sauce or foie gras, white meat and delicate cheeses.

About The Winery
The official history of Domaine Grand Veneur in the Southern Rhone Valley dates back to 1826, when the Jaume family first planted vines in Chateauneuf du Pape. Jumping ahead from the early days of Mathieu Jaume to the modern era for Domaine Grand Veneur, five generations later in 1979, Alain Jaume and Odile Jaume took over the traditionally managed Domaine Grand Veneur.
The family believe in maintaining the harmony between the grape and the soil and so they farm organically. They were certified organic in 2012.
