Tasting note Clos du Caillou


Bright red in color and beautiful in aroma, with jam-like red fruit and nuances of laurel and roasted notes. The taste starts elegant and full and develops refined aromatic with a long, balanced aftertaste.

Description

The well-known pitfall in a famous wine region is that producers sell more by name than by quality. You see this happen often and it usually causes serious setbacks if you assume that a low-priced offer from a well-known designation of origin is also good. Unfortunately, the inspections for the appellation contrôlée are more about the origin than about the taste. Quality has its price, and that certainly applies in an area such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The good reputation is based on a limited group of winemakers who excel in quality.
 
Such as the small Le Clos du Caillou in Courthézon where Sylvie Vacheron and Bruno Gaspard make impressive red wines. The tradition is the first in the Châteauneuf range. The grapes are harvested by hand and again sorted for quality in the cellar. Fermentation starts with the wild yeast in concrete cuves and afterwards the wine matures for 15 months in large wooden barrels. They no longer give off a woody smell, but provide stability and maturation. The average age of the 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah grapes is 30 years and the yield in the vineyard is below 30 hl / ha. Very beautiful!

Drink with
Beautiful wine with lamb, game birds or finely spiced vegetable dishes.

Shelf life
From three to four years after harvest, the drink had a good shelf life of seven to eight years.
