2019 Châteauneuf-du-Pape 'La Réserve', Clos du Caillou
Available En Primeur
"Last of the barrel samples, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Réserve is the more Mourvèdre dominated release from this team thats brought up mostly in used demi-muids. A gamey, meaty, complex bouquet of red and blue fruits, smoked game, spring flowers, and a distinct sense of minerality. With an almost Burgundian texture, this full-bodied, balanced, nicely structured 2019 is going to need at least 4-6 years of bottle age, but is pure gold"

Under talented wine maker Bruno Gaspard and the Vacheron family, Clos du Caillou has established itself as one of the finest producers in the Rhône, creating exceptionally well-balanced wines with their signature, velvety tannins. From the very beginning of his tenure as the worlds most famed wine critic, Robert Parker Jr. was a fan of the property, indeed, writing of their exceptional 2001 La Reserve noted it as being one of the most monumental wines of this appellation I have ever tasted. Some praise indeed for a wine which really pushed the envelope internationally for this exceptional estate. One thing is certain over the ensuing years; they have never looked back.
