  • Unlike estates with a long history of wine cultivation that spans multiple centuries in Rhone, Clos St. Jean is a relatively new gem in the region. It was founded by Edmund Tacussel, who spent 10 years perfecting his winemaking techniques on the estate before offering the first bottles on the market. The Clos St. Jean estate remained under many wine critics' radars until 2003, when Robert Parker praised wine released from the estate that year. Since then, Clos St. Jean has become one of the most collected producers in Rhone.

    Today, Pascal and Vincent Maurel manage the estate. They brought in Philippe Cambie in 2002 as their consultant. The vineyards of Clos Saint Jean are planted on 44 hectares located on the stony terroir of La Crau. 1 hectare of vines is reserved for grapes used in making white Chateauneuf du Pape wine. Clos Saint Jean believes in complete destemming of the berries. The maceration period is long and can last up to 35 days. The Grenache is never aged in any type of wood. The Mourvedre and Syrah is aged in a combination of one year old and two year old oak barrels.
