2017 Le Clos du Caillou Cotes du Rhone VV
Of all the terroir in the Côtes du Rhône appellation, the “clos” of Caillou has to be one of the most exceptional. Completely surrounded by Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyards, this walled parcel of land was intentionally left out of the appellation by the owner, following a bureaucratic spat back in 1936. What this means today is that Caillou’s Côtes du Rhône wines are the qualitatively the same, with regard to terroir and exposition, as top Châteauneuf wines.
Aromas of garrigue (wild thyme, lavender and rosemary). Flavors of raspberry and black cherry.
Caillou tends wonderfully old Grenache vines, some of which are 70 to 100 years old.
France, Cotes du Rhone
82% Grenache, 18% Syrah
