1998 Le Clos du Caillou "Tres Vieilles Vignes Reserve" Cotes-du-Rhone

SKU #1081174

Translated from the producer's website: "Le Clos du Caillou is ideally located in the town of Courthézon. It consists of 44 hectares in the Côtes du Rhône appellation and 9 hectares in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation. Le Clos has the distinction of being located on the edge with the appellation Châteauneuf du Pape. Formerly hunting grounds, in 1936 the owner refused a visit to the area by experts undertaking the delimitation of the appellation Châteauneuf du Pape. Thus, the Clos was not retained in the delimitation, and today, le Clos du Caillou remains an enclave in the Châteauneuf du Pape."

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
