Winemaker's Notes

Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2021 greets the senses with a deep, garnet hue, hinting at the wine's concentration and maturity. On the nose, intense aromas of ripe blackberries and red cherries dominate, accompanied by subtle nuances of lavender, dried herbs, and a touch of exotic spice. The first sip reveals a wine of great structure and elegance, where the richness of sun-kissed Grenache is complemented by the depth and complexity of Syrah and Mourvèdre.

Bold and full-bodied, this Châteauneuf-du-Pape unfolds on the palate with layers of dark fruit, including black plum and fig, seamlessly woven together with hints of black pepper, anise, and a touch of leather. The wine's firm tannins provide a robust backbone, promising age-worthiness, while a judicious use of oak contributes to a velvety texture and a lingering finish.

Critic Rating

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 95:
Leads with warm ganache and fig bread notes, followed quickly by raspberry reduction accents that take some time to unwind. Showcases plum pâte de fruit, sanguine and black licorice notes, with a flicker of Turkish coffee underscoring the finish and giving this a decidedly dark profile in the end. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Vaccarèse and Muscardin.

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 93:
As usual, the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes brings more richness and depth without losing any sense of elegance or balance. Blackberries, ground herbs, chalky minerality and loamy earth flow to a ripe, medium to full-bodied, seamless, incredibly elegant 2020 with tons of character. It will evolve for 10-15 years as well.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 92:
A bottling for the American importer (Eric Solomon/European Selections), the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is blended to the same proportions as the main cuvée (75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and the rest a mix of other permitted red varieties), but it includes more old-vine Grenache. It's all destemmed and reached 16% alcohol this vintage, so it's a slightly bigger, richer wine, loaded with black cherries and dried spices.
