As one of the most highly acclaimed producers in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Clos Saint-Jean is recognized to produce upper echelon wines with critical recognition. In 1900 the estate was founded by Edmund Tacussel in the famous lieu-dit La Crau, and they were bottling commercial wines by 1910 before Châteauneuf-du-Pape was an official appellation. To this day the winery is family owned and operated, as well as assisted by influential consultant, Philippe Cambie. The estate practices sustainable farming and is known to macerate for extensive time which have helped three of their wines in earning 100 point scores from the coveted Robert Parker. Clos Saint-Jean is as devoted to the terroir as it is to the rich history that has given them their well-earned reputation known throughout France.
