"Based on 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest Vaccarèse and Cinsault, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Combes des Fous always shows a slightly more elegant and seamless profile compared to the Deus Ex Machina, and that’s certainly apparent in 2017. White flowers, black cherries, blackberries, graphite, and ample peppery spice notes all emerge from this opulent, powerful wine, which has no hard edges and incredible purity of fruit."

"Ripe, rich and full-bodied but not quite over the top, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape La Combe des Fous shows great depth and power. Hints of dusty earth and licorice add nuance to the plummy flavors, which also carry hints of dried fruit and chocolate on the long finish."
