    Recently I had two of the most tremendous Chateauneufs at a dinner party and they affirmed why I fell in love with the wines from this region so long ago. They were both served at a dinner party where the staple was multiple courses of beef cooked over Japanese charcoal. The first was a 1995 Marcoux Vieilles Vignes that was seamless and I would put it easily in my top five CDPs of all time. The second was a 2004 Clos Saint Jean Deux Ex Machina. Not what the critics would qualify as a great vintage but easily one of the best wines I have ever tasted from Saint-Jean. The wine was deep rich and showed more of the modern qualities of Chateauneuf. The beauty was how it unfolded in waves of flavors and not one big chunk of balmy fruit. It was gorgeous and went beautifully with the fattier cuts of meat. So what about this 2015? Well after tasting an retasting - I found qualities from both of those great wines in what is surely the most harmonious Vieilles Vignes I have yet tasted. A beautiful panoply of spices unfolds followed by layers of rich but not over-ripe fruit leading to a long and lingering finish. Like I've been saying, 2015 has produced wines that scale back the opulence but bring out the layers. The Clos Saint Jean VV is a worthy addition to any collector's cellar and it will surely be a part of mine.
