Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône “Le Bouquet des Garrigues” Rouge 2018

R325.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Cotes du Rhone Le Bouquet des Garrigues boasts plenty of—you guessed it—garrigue aromas, imparting a slightly briery edge to the cherry-scented fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, soft and cuddly, with supple tannins and charming, early-drinking appeal." Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Les Safres” Rouge 2018

R695.00 inc. VAT
"Deep bright-hued red. Sexy, spice-accented aromas of ripe red berries and potpourri are lent vivacity by a smoky mineral element. Sweet, palate-coating raspberry, cherry preserve, spicecake and floral pastille flavors show a suave blend of depth and energy. Displays fine delineation and finishes with superb clarity and emphatic, red-fruit-driven persistence." Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône “La Réserve” Blanc 2019

R565.00 inc. VAT
"The 100% Clairette Rose 2019 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve Blanc was vinified in tank, then aged in a mix of new demi-muids (55%) and stainless steel (45%). Hints of pencil shavings accent peach and lime notes on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is smooth and silky, offering no obstacles to pure enjoyment on the way to a long, zesty finish. I wouldn't hesitate to put this up against many white Châteauneufs." - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône “Les Quartz” Rouge 2018

R425.01 inc. VAT
"Slightly bigger and more structured than the "Garrigues" bottling, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone Les Quartz boasts hints of bay leaf and violets accenting cherry and leather notes. Full-bodied and admirably concentrated, framed by silky tannins, this blend of Grenache and Syrah finishes long and savory." Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes-du-Rhône “Le Bouquet des Garrigues” Blanc 2019

R325.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Cotes du Rhone Le Bouquet des Garrigues Blanc is a tank-fermented and aged blend of 40% Clairette, 30% Grenache Blanc and 15% each Roussanne and Viognier. It's more lime-like and linear than the le Caillou bottling, reflecting the different cépages as well as the terroir. Hints of green peach reveal the ripeness of the vintage while retaining a zesty quality. It's medium to full-bodied, with a silky feel and terrific length." - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Le Clos du Caillou Côtes du Rhône “Le Bouquet des Garrigues” Blanc 2018

R295.00 inc. VAT
"The 2017 Cotes du Rhone Le Bouquet des Garrigues Blanc is crisper and more focused than the basic Le Caillou bottling. Boasting racy lime aromas and flavors, it's tonic and zesty on the long finish. A blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Viognier, it should drink well for a couple of years." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
