Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Safres checks in as 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre and has a complex, nuanced, medium to full-bodied style that just begs to be drunk. Offering up lots of red and black fruits, morello cherries, Provençal herbs, and saddle leather notes, it has enough structure to evolve for 15 years or more.

V 94
Vinous

Shimmering ruby. Highly perfumed blueberry, cherry, spice cake and potpourri scents and a hint of exotic spices on the expressive nose. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering vibrant red and blue fruit, lavender and spice cake flavors that steadily deepen as the wine opens up. In a graceful style, with polished tannins giving shape to an impressively long, sappy finish.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Vibrant and enticing, offering a lively mix of cherry compote, raspberry puree and red licorice notes melded together, with a subtle apple wood accent and a hint of briar through the finish. Very polished in feel, making this accessible now (but no rush). Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Drink now through 2035.

"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.
