Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 94

(aged in demimuids for 15 months): Brilliant ruby-red. Deep-pitched dark berry, cherry pit and incense aromas are sharpened by a smoky mineral quality and a suggestion of peppery spices. Clear, palate-staining blackberry and bitter cherry flavors become sweeter and more lively with air, picking up a suave lavender pastille nuance. Supple, slow-building tannins shape the finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity and a resonating floral note. [Josh Raynolds, 04/01/2016]

JancisRobinson.com – 17

55% Grenache, 45% Mourvèdre, aged 60 years. Sandy soil on the lieux-dits La Guigasse et Pignan. 19 hl/ha. In demi-muids (600 litres) for 15 months. There’s an immediate sign of the Mourvèdre here in its meaty/savoury character but there’s also a very slight and attractive herbal quality on the nose. Bigger overall than their other Châteauneufs but the tannins still show real finesse and it is not massive despite the higher alcohol. Firm and just a little chewy, but fresh too. (JH) [26/10/2015]

Robert Parker – 95

The cream of the lineup and one of the stars of the vintage is the 2013 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou. Incorporating more Mourvedre than normal (a blend of 55% Grenache and 45% Mourvedre), this smokin’ southern Rhone sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with notes of blackcurrants, white pepper, orange liqueur and graphite. Big, full-bodied, supple and elegant, it’s certainly not as massive as some of the greats from this estate (2001, 2005, 2007 or 2010), but hats off to the team for producing a wine of this quality in a difficult vintage.
