CNP "deus ex machina" 2012 - domaine Clos St Jean

Tasting notes

"The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Deus Ex Machina is (...). Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by incredible notes of cassis, roasted meats, licorice, toasted spice and a liquid rock-like minerality. Full-bodied, massive and concentrated, yet also seamless, elegant and incredibly polished, it flows onto the palate with building tannin, no hard edges and perfect balance. (...)"

This was the quintessentially old, rustic style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Clos St-Jean possesses some great vineyards, but the wines were aged entierely too long in old-wood casks.

However, the young Vincent Maurel recently took control and turned things around in one vintage, 2003. Now, brillant wines are made, including the top cuvée, The Deus Ex Machina, the Combe des Fous, and the traditional cuvée.

Clos St. Jean Chateauneuf du Pape is made from 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 4% Mourvedre, 3% Cinsault, 2% Vaccarese and 1% Muscardin.

Clos St. Jean La Combe des Fous from old vine Grenache planted at the start of the 20th century. The production is only 500 cases per year.

Clos St. Jean Deus ex Machina is made with 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre. The production is limited to 500 cases per year.
