Red Wine from France - Rhone

Altitude and mountain breezes make Vinsobres the ideal place to source a Côtes-du-Rhône, and this example, made for us by our old friends the Jaume family for our 150th anniversary, has bright open fruity notes of cherry and raspberry, ripe tasting but without any heaviness.

More on the wine

The Jaume family are an institution in the village of Vinsobres and have produced over 100 vintages. The first supplied to The Wine Society was 1979, an immediate hit with members who enjoyed the generous fruit and lightness of touch, with altitude playing such an important role. It seemed obvious that Vinsobres, now a Cru of the Rhône Valley should feature in this 150th anniversary range.

The family’s wines are among the best-selling red Rhônes on our list and Vinsobres is a beautiful hillside village in the southern part of the Valley, blessed with extremely well-exposed vineyard sites. A warm welcome awaits visitors here, especially Wine Society members, with Richard’s wife Laurence on hand to meet and greet with genuine pleasure.

Domaine Jaume

Domaine Jaume, which celebrated its centenary in 2005, has been supplying The Wine Society with Côtes-du-Rhône since 1981. The wines are among the best-selling red Rhônes on our list. The domaine is based in Vinsobres, a beautiful hillside village in the southern part of the Valley, blessed with extremely well-exposed vineyard sites. The Jaumes worked hard to get cru status for Vinsobres and in the end won the argument based on their Cuvée Référence.Though geographically close to villages like Cairanne or Rasteau, the climate here is quite different with particularly interesting potential for the syrah grape. The Jaumes also own plots of vines high above village at an altitude of some 420 meters which inspired the name for another of their cuvées – Vinsobres Altitude 420.

Brothers Pascal and Richard Jaume are highly committed vignerons and strongly believe that wine should be highly enjoyable and approachable so the style they look for is smooth, round and satisfying. Pascal is often found in the vineyard and his wife Isabelle does much of the pruning. Richard divides his time between the cellar and the office. A warm welcome awaits visitors here, especially Wine Society members, with Richard’s wife Laurence on hand to meet and greet with genuine pleasure.
