Clos Saint Jean produces a total of five different red Chateauneuf du Pape wines and one Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc. The estate believes in complete destemming, long macerations and while Grenache is not aged in wood, other varietals are aged in one year old, French oak barrels.
The special selection for American importer Peter Weygandt, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes, ratchets up the level of succulence, juiciness, and opulence. It is a fabulous, compelling effort of multiple dimensions. Classic aromas and flavors of licorice, kirsch liqueur, balsam wood, and lavender are found in this enormously full-bodied wine along with unreal concentration and perfect balance. This astonishing effort should drink well for 20+ years.
Alluring mulled spice, braised fig and red currant fruit is layered with mouthwatering maduro tobacco and bittersweet cocoa notes. Picks up a bright minerally edge on the finish. Excellent precision. Best from 2010 through 2020.
The prestigious Clos Saint Jean is run by the fourth generation of the
Tacussel/Maurel family - Vincent and Pascal Maurel - under the tutelage
of renowned oenologist Philippe Cambie. Clos Saint-Jean is considered
by critics, sommeliers, and consumers alike to be among the top
properties of the Southern Rhone. Robert Parker comments, “The tasting
of the five (2007) cuvees must rank among the greatest single tasting in
the southern Rhone I have ever done in 30+ years of wine tasting. Last
year I sensed something special was happening, and the bottled (2007)
wines confirm that something rare had occurred in the vineyards and
cellars of Clos Saint-Jean.” The estate now boasts four 100 point wines,
sourced from their extraordinary old vine plots, including choice parcels
in the famed La Crau district of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The raw material
for this wine is what is deemed at many domaines suitable for their top
end cuvees, yet at Clos Saint-Jean this is their classic bottling. This
cuvee “Vieilles Vignes” is produced from the oldest vines of the
