2019 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Safres" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $55)

SKU #1555942 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Blackberry, star anise and juniper. Only medium-bodied for a Châteauneuf, but this has plenty of impact and intensity. Lovely bright acid line and sense of freshness from start to finish. Silky and voluptuous. (MW) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Leading off the 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape, all of which were tasted from barrel, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Safres should equal or surpass the 2018 as it has the same level of elegance and finesse, yet even better mid-palate depth and concentration. It’s beautifully done and well worth purchasing. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Highly perfumed blueberry, cherry, spicecake and potpourri scents and a hint of exotic spices on the expressive nose. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering vibrant red and blue fruit, lavender and spicecake flavors that steadily deepen as the wine opens up. In a graceful style, with polished tannins giving shape to an impressively long, sappy finish. (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2021)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Les Safres is impressively rich and ripe, delivering velvety layers of black cherries and blueberries, combined with hints of dried spices and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, expansive in the mouth and long on the finish, it looks to be an excellent example of Les Safres, which is 95% Grenache from Les Bedines. (JC) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Vibrant and enticing, offering a lively mix of cherry compote, raspberry puree and red licorice notes melded together, with a subtle apple wood accent and a hint of briar through the finish. Very polished in feel, making this accessible now (but no rush). Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. (JM) Inner quote mark (2/2022)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Bright red-fruit aromas are married to generous, supple tannins in this attractive, modern-style Chateauneuf that combines charm and structure neatly. Long, rather fine-grained finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (3/2022)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Heavy nose which shows dark, animal, spicy notes. Lovely fleshy note alongside a really balanced core of acidity and high-quality oak. The fruit here is so well-managed and clean and there is a vibrancy to the wine that just sings. Ding-dong! 17.5/20 points (AC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
