Clos Saint Jean is run by brothers Vincent and Pascal Maurel and is considered amongst the very finest estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. La Combe de Fous translates as ‘the hill of the fool’ and is a reference to their great-great-grandfather, Edmund Tacussel, who in 1905 planted Grenache vines in one of the hilliest and most inhospitably stoney sections of the iconic Le Crau sub-region. It is this ancient-vine fruit that forms the backbone to this cuvée, a remarkably rich yet velvety wine that rides the perfect line between immense power and beguiling elegance.
