2010 Domaine du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteaunuef-du-Pape

SKU #1126041 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Even better, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz offers additional depth and richness, with ample dark fruits, blackberry, crushed rock and edgy minerality giving way to a full-bodied, big, powerful wine that won’t hit prime-time for another 3-4 years. When all is said and done, it will have two decades of longevity. (JD)  (8/2014)

95 points Wine Spectator

 This is fruit in hyperdrive, with a torrent of crushed blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry flavors rushing along, laced with sweet licorice and fruitcake and driving through the long, very polished finish, where a nice echo of charcoal keeps it honest. Really gorgeous. Drink now through 2025. (JM)  (10/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Saturated ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of dark fruit liqueur, potpourri and garrigue, with smoke and spice overtones. Showing an impressive blend of power and energy, with sappy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become spicier in the glass. Closes with serious punch, velvety tannins and lingering spice and dark fruit notes. (JR)  (2/2013)

Jancis Robinson

 Mid crimson. Broad, warm, spicy and alluring on the nose. Hint of cocoa powder but lots of freshness too. Very glamorous and appealing. Lift and polish but masses of character and good structure under all that ripe fruit with herbal topnotes. I like!! Finishes stony - or do I mean quartzy? Manages to be both racy and voluptuous. Zesty, almost citrus peel finish. Such a flirt of a wine!  (4/2012)

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. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
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.
