Domaine du Clos du Caillou Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou 2001, 750mL (WA100) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine du Clos du Caillou Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou

750mL

Vintage: 2001
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape
Condition: nl, sscl

WA100
Rated 100 points by the Wine Advocate: "As frighteningly spectacular as the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Le Clos du Caillou was (I`ve drunk a half dozen or more bottles since my initial report), the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Le Clos du Caillou is one of the most monumental wines of this appellation I have ever tasted. A legendary effort that pays homage to the last vintage the late Jean-Denis Vacheron produced, it boasts an inky/purple color in addition to a terrific perfume of creme de cassis, kirsch, acacia flowers, melted licorice, and graphite. It possesses awesome purity as well as layers of concentration, yet a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, and alcohol. Spectacularly long (the finish lasts over 60 seconds), it cuts a broad swath across the palate, yet is remarkably light on its feet. This amazing effort, a blend of 45% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre, and 15% Syrah, is one of the strongest candidates for wine of the vintage in 2001. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2022."
