1996 Domaine du Caillou "Reserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1469256 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1996 Chateauneuf du Pape is among the vintage's more seductive wines. Deep and fruity, with gorgeous levels of glycerin, raspberry, and kirsch flavors, it is an up-front, hedonistic wine with surprisingly low acidity, and a succulent, fleshy style. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/1997)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Perfumed, tangy aromas of raspberry, cherry, leather and oak spice; distinctly Burgundian in style. Juicy, spicy and fresh, with good intensity and delineation and a sappy sweetness. No shortage of texture for the vintage. Finishes brisk, with tongue-dusting tannins and spicy red fruit flavor. A very good showing. The '96 and '97 Clos du Caillou Châteauneufs clearly display the stylistic differences between the two vintages. Inner quote mark (1/1999)
