Winemaker Notes

The wine has a beautiful deep-red dress with bright reflections. The nose has aromas of cherries wild myrtle, red berries of the woods, with mild spices, wild licorice, and fennel. On the mouth, the wine is full and silky, with aromas of figs, plums, caramel, and roasted cocoa beans, combined with a beautiful freshness. A great wine for aging.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Ten years on, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Safres (almost all Grenache) is bricking in hue and showing hints of decay on the nose, but it continues to charm on the palate, delivering sweet cherries, ample weight and a creamy, lush feel. Drink it over the next few years.

"I recognize that I am one of the luckiest people in the world to have this job, and the privilege of tasting so many incredible wines, but certainly the efforts produced by Domaine du Caillou since 1998 rank among the most exciting I have ever tasted."
—Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

From robust Côtes-du-Rhône to memorable Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Clos du Caillou wines arguably represent some of the finest values in all of France. Proprietor Sylvie Vacheron and winemaker Bruno Gaspard are keeping the great work of the late Jean-Denis Vacheron alive with wines that are heady, robust and mouth-wateringly lush.

Caillou tends wonderfully old Grenache vines, some of which are 70 to 100 years old. With older Syrah and Mourvèdre added to the mix, it’s no wonder that Caillou wines are across the board impressive for their power, extract and deep minerality. The estate’s Chateauneuf terroir borders the impressive domaines of Chateau Rayas and Beaucastel.

Yet many of the Vacheron-Pouizin family's old vines are classified, by a quirk of 1923 politics, Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages. It’s why our Côtes-du-Rhône barrel selections show surprisingly like its kin in Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

In 1996 Jean-Denis Vacheron took full control of the viticulture and élévage at this estate. Under his stewardship, the wines of Caillou steadily gained stature, and today are benchmarks for the appellation. He understood that temperature-controlled fermentation and a cool, clean cellar are necessary to craft wines with refinement and true complexity.
