2003 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteaunuef-du-Pape

SKU #1244688 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark As expected, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is a ripe, exuberant effort. Plum, figs, licorice, roasted herbs and roasted meats are just some of the nuances here, and it has full-bodied richness, good concentration and sweet tannin. Drink it over the coming couple of years. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Soaring aromas of red berries, Asian spices and pungent rose oil. Thick and creamy on the palate, with flavors of kirsch, spicy strawberry and plum jam. This is carrying about 16% alcohol but it's detectible only in a bit of warmth on the finish. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2006)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Plush, velvety texture with layers of cocoa, mocha, black cherry, boysenberry and plum flavors. Plenty of toast, but very creamy for an '03, with a long, fruit-filled finish. Inner quote mark (12/2005)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The top cuvée from the Domaine le Clos de Caillou takes its name from the stones of quartz which make up the vineyard. This is a deliciously rich wine, which shines with very ripe red fruits and layers of modern tannins. Although the aftertaste is dry, the fruit is already attractive. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

K&L Notes

95-97 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "A stunning nose of ripe raspberry, black cherry and game. Very complex and well defined on the palate with noticeable aromatic Viognier. Very concentrated with seamless tannins and a beguiling balance. A serious long-term wine." (08/2007)
