Tasting Notes

    Score: 17.5

    Dark cherry red. Very refreshing and lively without any exaggeration, except the high alcohol. Not especially tannic until some fine tannins at the very end, but winsome and chock full of fresh, ripe fruit. Drink 2014-2022

    More open and ready to go, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Le Clos du Caillou is a perfumed, sexy wine that thrills with its cassis, candied licorice, violets, flowers and spice. Surprisingly up front and open, yet with smoking purity of fruit and fine tannin, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 10-15 years. Drink 2016-2031

Region

Châteauneuf du Pape

The emperor of southern Rhône appellations, Châteauneuf du Pape was the first A.O.C. in all of France, created in 1936. Their bottle is unique embossed with the papal coat of arms. Thirteen varieties (14 if Grenache Blanc is counted separately) can be incorporated in the blend. The reds include: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cinsault, Terret Noir, Picpoul, Vaccarèse, Counoise, Muscardin, while the whites are Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Clairette. Only a handful of producers use all 13, Grenache often being the highest percentage of the blend. This enables each producer to highlight the varieties that are the ripest and most interesting in any given year. Most Châteauneuf du Pâpes are master examples of wines that can be approachable within the first few years of release yet able to develop superb complexity during many years of cellaring.
