Clos Saint Jean
In a little over ten years, the brothers Vincent and Pascal Maurel, have transformed this once moribund estate into arguably the finest domaine in the appellation. The wine property is similar in size to Beaucastel and also has some spectacular parcels of old vines, its centurion-holders mainly situated on the Crau plateau. The winemaking here is traditional, yet the wines themselves seem to marry tradition and modernity with effortless aplomb. Their cuvee’s, Deus Ex Machina and La Combe des Fous are, without doubt, two of the greatest expressions of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
