Always an outstanding wine, 1999 Le Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine du Caillou Les Quartz doesn’t disappoint with beautiful, fruit driven notes of spice, licorice and minerals all wrapped around a sweet core of dark Grenache fruit. Love the purity and fruit quality. The palate is medium to full bodied with admirable density, sweet fruit and a soft, lush texture that leads into a long finish. (JD)
Readers should not miss out on any of the 1999s from Domaine du Caillou...they are spectacular efforts that represent some of the finest wines of the vintage. (RP)
(includes about 20% syrah, all of which was aged in new pieces; from soil rich in galets roules, the large round stones found across much of the northern portion of the appellation) Bright ruby-red. Wonderfully aromatic nose combines plum, redcurrant, smoked meat and chocolate. Mouthfilling, sweet and chewy, if currently a bit closed. Concentrated and rich but not yet totally harmonious. This wine was assembled only a month or so prior to the bottling. Today the tannins stand out. (ST) 92+
