Domaine Le Clos du Caillou
Le Clos du Caillou in the Rhone is known worldwide for its beautiful Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Yet the vineyards of the domain do not officially fall within the AOC. That has everything to do with the obstinacy of the first owner: in 1936 he did not want to admit the experts who came to assess his company on his land. And so Sylvie Vacheron, the current owner, has a company that shares, but does not belong to, the terroir of the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.
Sylvie's father, Claude Pouizin, bought Le Clos du Caillou in 1956. The work was then focused purely on grape growing and the entire harvest went to the cooperative. Only in 1993 was wine made again for the first time. In 1995 Sylvie and her (now deceased) husband took over the domain and started a whole series of innovations.
Together with winemaker Bruno Gaspard, Sylvie now manages the estate, which owns 44 hectares of vineyards in the Côtes du Rhône and 9 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The entire company is certified organic. Grapes are also planted that traditionally thrive in the warmth of the Rhone region, such as grenache, syrah and (for white) roussanne. It is made with a soft hand of wine, which is smooth, round and especially silky.
