Clos du caillou Cotes rhone garrigues red 2020
The Clos du Caillou Cotes du Rhone Bouquet de Garrigues Red 2020 is a notable wine, characterized by its elegance and robust flavor profile. This medium-bodied wine impresses with its aromatic blend of ripe red and black fruits, accentuated by peppery herbs and sappy floral notes. It is described as a wine that is enjoyable right from the start, indicating its approachability and balance. Clos du Caillou, known for producing some of the finest wines in France, manages old Grenache vines, some dating back 70 to 100 years. The addition of older Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes contributes to the wine's impressive power, extract, and deep minerality. This combination results in a wine that is both heady and lush, reflecting the skilled winemaking of proprietor Sylvie Vacheron and winemaker Bruno Gaspard, who continue the legacy of the late Jean-Denis Vacheron. The estate's location near the prestigious domaines of Chateau Rayas and Beaucastel in the Chateauneuf region further enhances its reputation.
