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