K&L Notes

Here is a great value wine. It displays delicious fruit along with soft tannins, and a big, projected bouquet of crushed herbs, black cherry jam and tobacco. With good acidity as well as medium to full body, it should drink nicely for a decade or more. "Since 2003, when Pascal and Vincent Maurel took over this estate after their father's passing, Clos Saint-Jean has gone from strength to strength," notes Robert Parker. "They have always owned great vineyards, and they had the foresight to hire a brilliant consulting oenologist, Philippe Cambie. The result has been instant stardom, and a succession of world-class wines. Recently they also partnered with the California Central Coast's renowned Manfred Krankl of Sine Qua Non to produce another luxury cuvee of Chateauneuf du Pape from mostly Mourvedre called Chimere. A large estate for Chateauneuf du Pape (over 110 acres), Clos Saint-Jean's history dates back to 1900, with the first Maurel taking control in 1930. The majority of their holdings are in the southeastern sector of the appellation, including significant parcels in La Crau, Les Combes and St-Jean. In top vintages, Clos Saint-Jean produces five cuvees of red Chateauneuf du Pape, and the 2011s are successful across the board." (10/2012)
