  • What the experts say...

    "This magical wine boasts an inky/ruby/purple color, astonishing richness and an extraordinary perfume of black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, lavender and loamy soil. So pure, unctuous and viscous, it is over-the-top in richness and intensity." R. Parker (10/2012)

    Cuvée presentation

    This exceptional cuvée from the Domaine du Clos Saint-Jean is produced only in magnum format. It is made exclusively from Grenache vines, planted in 1905 and grown using organic farming methods. The wines age half a year in demi-muid barrels before being bottled, without filtration. A very fine wine for drinking with good food; it should be kept for a few years to bring out its full generosity, body and bouquet, composed of red and black berries and aromatic herbs.

    Information about domain Clos Saint-Jean

    Clos Saint Jean was established at the start of the 20th century by Edmond Tacussel and took on its current name in 1910. It has stayed in the same family over the generations, has expanded, and is currently run by Pascal and Vincent Maurel. Forty of its hectares are planted for Châteauneuf-du-Pape red and just one is planted for white. Yields are carefully controlled through pruning and green harvesting. The use of insecticides and chemical fertilisers is also kept to an absolute minimum. The quality of the grapes and the wine is evident. Length, texture and tension are key characteristics of wines from this highly-regarded domain.
