Vin beskrivelse
Cuvée La Combe des Fous (" Tåbernes kløft") er produceret på basis af primært Grenache fra en parcel i "La Crau", der i fordoms tid blev betragtet som værende for svær at dyrke. Maurel'ernes oldefar var "tåbelig" nok til at plante bl.a. Grenache her og som man kan smage er resultatet fremragende. Vinen er fremstillet af 60 % Grenache tilsat barrique lageret Syrah og en smule Cinsault m.m.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (94-97 points):
"The 2015 reds from these two brothers are some of the gems in the vintage. The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Combe des Fous is another sensational wine. Full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated and yet with the ever present elegance and finesse this cuvée always possesses, it offers layers of black raspberries, crème de cassis, white flowers, licorice and cured meat-like aromas and flavors. It will certainly be one of the top handful of wines in the vintage."

Jeb Dunnuck (96 points):
"The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Combe des Fous shows the seamless, silky side to the vintage, and has closed down slightly since I tasted it from barrel. Its big, intense nose of black cherries, blueberries, white chocolate, and garrigue gives way to a full-bodied, plush, gorgeously layered 2015 that will benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring."
