Clos Du Caillou Chateauneuf-du-Pape La Reserve 2012 (6x150cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

Lastly, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou is a classic example of this cuvee. Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, aged all in demi-muid, it offers ample dark fruits, chocolate, bouquet garni and licorice in its full-bodied, supple, forward and elegantly styled profile. As with all of the 2012s here, the tannin is wonderfully ripe, the wine has solid concentration and everything is perfectly balanced. While it’s hard to resist already, it will be better with short-term cellaring and have 15+ years of overall longevity.

Wine Advocate (98-100)

Le Clos du Caillou's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve continues this bottling's winning ways, making three straight vintages in which I've rated it at least 97 points. Sourced from old-vine Grenache and Mourvèdre in the lieux-dits of La Guigasse and Pignan, it's rich, creamy and plush, yet it seems effortless despite the concentration. Mocha and caramelized berries finish with great length and energy. I can't wait to see how it turns out from bottle.

Decanter (98)

Captivating spice-led nose, this is a lithe, dynamic and athletic style of Châteauneuf. Very well balanced and focused with great aromatic precision. The alcohol is gently warming on the finish but this is nonetheless just gorgeous. Grown on sand in lieux-dits La Guigasse and Pignan, destemmed, fermented in tronconic vats then matured mostly in demi-muid and a 10% portion in amphora for 14 months.

Clos du Caillou Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Quartz 2019 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (96-99)

The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Quartz also looks to be a step up over the 2018, with rockstar levels of blackberry and kirsch fruits interwoven with lots of garrigue, sappy flowers, and melted licorice. This big, opulent, super-plush, and sexy 2019 is flawlessly balanced, has great tannins, and a monster of a finish. Count me impressed. Is this even better than the 2016?

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. 95% Grenache; 5% Mourvèdre, Vaccarèse and Cinsault. Grown on sand in lieu-dit Les Bédines, destemmed, fermented in concrete, then matured mostly in foudre except for 25% in demi-muid.

Jeb Dunnuck (94)

Including more Mourvèdre, the 2018 Côtes du Rhône La Reserve checks in as 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre that was brought up all in demi-muids. Almost opaque ruby, with a blockbuster nose of Bing cherries, black raspberries, flowery incense, toasted spices, and dry-aged beef, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture, loads of fruit, and a great finish. The level of purity as well as finesse in this wine, paired with plenty of richness, is something to behold. It way over-delivers for a Côtes du Rhône. In fact, for my money, this is one of the best Côtes du Rhône out there. It’s terrific today yet will evolve nicely for a solid decade. Does Côtes du Rhônes get any better?

Ratcheting up the quality level, the 2018 Côtes du Rhône Les Quartz is a brilliant wine based on 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that comes from vines just around the estate in the eastern sector of Châteauneuf du Pape. Vivid ruby, with a stunning bouquet of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, Provençal garrigue, and Asian spices, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, the seamless, elegant character that’s common in the vintage, and a great finish. This would easily pass undetected in a blind lineup of top Châteauneuf du Papes. Enjoy bottles over the coming 5-7 years.
