Winemaker's Notes

Saint-Jean is found in numerous countries. It symbolizes life. It comes from fertile soils and land. It is made for quality foods, all of which is suitable to life. A classic Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge, ruby red in color with dense but fresh fruit flavors and pepper on the palate. Finishes with grain-like tannins and all-encompassing of the terroir.

Critical Acclaim

"Full red. Muskier and more perfumed than the previous wine, displaying potent red and dark berry scents and a hint of anise. Spicy and broad, with sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors and a firm mineral spine. Finishes with very good clarity and persistent spice and floral nuances."
