K&L Notes

Le Clos du Caillou is in the Courthezon portion of the Chateauneuf appellation. Most of the vineyards are on sandier soils and all are organically certified and farmed biodynamically. Grapes are hand-harvested and fermentation is done with native yeasts. Elevage is in a mix of new and used 600L barrels. The grapes come from two lieu-dits: La Guigasse, which is right next to the original Clos estate vineyard and the famed Pignan, known for being the primary source of Rayas's vines. Both are primarily sandy soils. It is a blend of Grenache and Mourvedre from vines averaging 60 years of age. It is one of the great wines of the region.

    Also on sandy soils. Shows the most garrigue and of course great concentration. Impeccable balance, never heavy or overwhelming. Tasted next to the 2012 which is just beginning to evolve. A great comparable thread running through the wine that speaks to the terroir. A wine that will grow and evolve for years to come.
