More About A Deux Têtes

 

A two-headed monster might be more complicated but two heads are better than one.  A Duex Têtes is a two-headed adventure in transcontinental wine making conceived by two legends in their crafts.

 

The friendship between Philippe Cambie and Phil Coturri was almost inevitable. They are kindred spirits, bona fide Grenache-heads, hedonists who ply their trades to exacting standards. They first crossed paths on Philippe’s territory; Phil was a guest speaker at Les Printemps de Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The relationship was cemented over a meal and few bottles of wine at a 3 star restaurant in Phil’s hometown, San Francisco. By the time they were visiting Grenache vineyards in Napa and Sonoma there was a nearly simultaneous realization. Cambie wanted to express Coturri-farmed vineyards, and Coturri wanted to see what heights his Grenache could reach in the hands of Cambie.

 

Philippe Cambie is the legendary oenology consultant behind more than fifteen 100 point Grenache and Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines. He’s known as a master palate, expert blender and fermentation wizard. He consults for over 80 wine projects from Avignon to Washington State.  A Deux Têtes is his first North Coast wine collaboration.

 

Phil Coturri is the legendary viticulturist- pioneer of organic vineyard practices in Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley. He oversees over 650 acres of certified organic vineyards in the two valleys; growing grapes for numerous 95+ point wines and a dozen 100 point scores. About 65 percent of the vineyard acres he farms are Cabernet but he always manages to squeeze in a few acres of Grenache wherever he goes, even on the hallowed hillsides of Oakville.

 

The Wines

A Deux Têtes produces three limited production wines: Napa Valley Grenache rosé, Oakville Ranch Grenache and Rossi Ranch Grenache.

BEAU MARCHAIS by ADAM LEE & PHILIPPE CAMBIE

COMING SOON

Beau Marchais is a new winery created by  American Pinot Noir producer Adam Lee and famed vintner, Philippe Cambie.

We will produce our first wines beginning with the 2019 vintage. As you are waiting for these wines, please feel free to sign up for the mailing list by clicking on the link below. You can also learn more about what we are doing by reading the remainder of this website and by signing up to follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

ABOUT BEAU MARCHAIS

Loosely translated, “Beau Marchais” means “Beautiful Walking.”

Pierre Beaumarchais was a French playwright, inventor, musician, spy, and so much more. For the purpose of our winery, Beaumarchais was also one of the strongest supporters of France’s involvement on the side of the Colonists during the American Revolution. Prior to France officially entering the war, he set up a fake business, Roderigue Hortalez and Company, which Louis XVI used to send weapons, munitions, clothing and other supplies to the American rebels. These efforts directly led to the American victory at the Battle of Saratoga.

The idea of making this wine together is viewed by both of us as a beautiful walk together. A journey taken by colleagues, by friends, along the path of wine that we both love. And the idea of a French man, working together with Americans to promote something they both believe in – that obviously appealed as well.

Beau Marchais is all of that – friends, American and French, walking together towards a shared belief in producing transformational Pinot Noir.

Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016 N°8 du TOP 100 in WINESPECTATOR

Le Vieux DonjonChâteauneuf-du-Pape 2016 

Score95
Price$70
Cases Made 7,000

Few estates epitomize Châteauneuf-du-Pape like Le Vieux Donjon. Family-owned, it is now run by the sister-and-brother team of Claire and François Michel, who succeeded their father, the legendary Lucien Michel. In 2012, a vineyard purchased on sandy soils bolstered the domaine’s holdings to 99 acres while providing access to all four terroirs in the appellation (galets, clay, limestone and sand). The 2016 is a 75-10-10-5 percent blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault, respectively, vinified traditionally, with one exception—in this vintage, a small portion was aged in cement vats (instead of entirely in foudres) to emphasize the freshness of the fruit. With its telltale juniper note and vibrant minerality, this is one of the most ageworthy and widely available bottlings from this storied appellation.

Tasting Note

This offers a blitz of bay leaf and juniper notes out front, followed by a racy and tightly coiled core of red and black currant, damson plum and cherry fruit flavors. Lots of brisk iron and garrigue accents rifle through the finish. Clear, precise and streamlined, this should age wonderfully. Best from 2020 through 2040.—James Molesworth
