1999 Le Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1177687 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright red-ruby. Distinctly Burgundian aromas of red berries, smoke, underbrush and game. Sappy and silky in the mouth, with highly complex flavors of redcurrant, black cherry, tobacco, leather and game. Quite fine and pinot-like, and already very perfumed in the mouth. Finishes subtle and very long. A lovely combination of power and finesse. This wine was racked just once.  (1/2002)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 With four great vintages of Châteauneuf du Pape, 1999 being the least impressive, readers should not miss out on any of the 1999s from Domaine du Caillou as I have seen them available at retail. No, they are not the 1998s, 2000s, or 2001s, but they are spectacular efforts that represent some of the finest wines of the vintage. Not bad! (RP)  (2/2003)

K&L Notes

Located in the northeastern part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this estate has been farmed biodynamically for the past decade. This vintage is 90% Grenache, grown entirely on sandy soils. Since she took over the estate after the death of her husband, owner Sylvie Vacheron has become known for distinctively textured, supple wines. 14.8% ABV.
