La Combe Des Fous Clos Saint Jean Chateauneuf-de-Pape 2011


Description

Rhone Red Blends from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone, France

Winemaker Notes:
Combe des Fous literally means, the hill of the fool. The hill, in this case, is located in the far southern reach of Le Crau which was left barren for many centuries because the layer of galets was so exceedingly deep that everyone assumed vines could never survive there. The fool in this situation is Edmund Tacussel, the great-great-grandfather of Vincent and Pascal Maruel who planted a Grenache vineyard on this site in 1905. That old-vine Grenache form the heart of this cuvée with a small amount of Syrah, Cinsault and Vaccarèse.
