The best of the `08s (but not by much) the 2008 Le Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine du Caillou a blend of 70% Grenache 16% Mourvèdre 10% Syrah and the rest Cinsault and Vaccarèse is deeper and richer than the two Côtes du Rhônes exhibiting earthy meaty aromas intermixed with flowers spice licorice and very pretty fruit. Elegant and classy on the palate it's medium bodied with fresh acidity a focused straight texture and a long finish. Certainly an outstanding wine this delivers more on purity and edge than power and concentration. Drink this outstanding wine over the next 10 to 12+ years.

Drink now...

Dark red. Pungent high-pitched aromas and flavors of redcurrant cherry rose petal minerals and Asian spices; rather pinot in style actually. Silky dry and precise featuring good flavor impact without obvious weight. This... Dark red. Pungent high-pitched aromas and flavors of redcurrant cherry rose petal minerals and Asian spices; rather pinot in style actually. Silky dry and precise featuring good flavor impact without obvious weight. This forward wine stains the palate with perfumed flavors of red berries and herbs and finishes with very good clarity and spicy persistence.
