2009 Le Clos du Caillou "La Réserve" Chateauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1313694 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 More open and ready to go, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Le Clos du Caillou is a perfumed, sexy wine that thrills with its cassis, candied licorice, violets, flowers and spice. Surprisingly up front and open, yet with smoking purity of fruit and fine tannin, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 10-15 years. (JD)  (8/2014)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre: Bright ruby-red. Pungent, assertive aromas of candied red fruits, cola, incense and potpourri, with a hint of vanilla in the background. Stains the palate with deep raspberry and cherry flavors and becomes spicier with air. Supple tannins lend shape to the extremely long, sweet, penetrating finish. This is still a baby.

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
