Le Clos du Caillou

flagRhone / France

The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% old-vine Syrah. It shows much more minerality and a cool-climate character, and one could also imagine a grand cru Burgundy when smelling the hints of sweet, dark berries, black cherry liqueur, crushed rocks, and some floral notes. The wine has full body, beautiful richness, but it is restrained and everything seems to build in a measured, incremental manner. The tannins are moderate, the acidity present, but everything is in perfect harmony. This is a beauty, not a heavyweight. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
