2000 Domaine du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1117017 95 points Wine Spectator

 Thanks to its beautiful polish this manages to beguile despite a powerful core of raspberry ganache, sweet toast, mineral, violet, mocha, tobacco and aged fruitcake. Long, juicy finish resonates with pure, dark, vivid fruit. Beautiful. Drink now through 2015. (2004)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The brilliant 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is more evolved as well as spicier than the floral, mineral, and black fruit-dominated 2001. Full-bodied, with high glycerin, and a heady concoction of minerals, black raspberries, cherries, blackberries, and licorice, this layered, fruity, pure, well-balanced 2000 has a huge finish of nearly 50 seconds. It is a tour de force in winemaking. Anticipated maturity: now-2016.  (2/2003)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good full ruby-red. Fruit-driven aromas of black raspberry, cassis and bitter chocolate, with a hint of exotic fruits. Like a berry cocktail in the mouth, with penetrating, dense, sharply focused flavors of red berries, licorice and dark chocolate. A wonderfully lush and sweet wine with a compelling sappy quality and lovely aromatic character. But still a bit tight in the middle; the substantial, firm tannins call for four or five years of additional bottle aging.  (2/2003)
