Blood red color with bright purple reflections. On the nose, we have strawberry jam and wild myrtle jelly aromas, paired with notes of liquorice and saffron. Smooth and full on the palate, Le Clos du Caillou Les Quartz shows very silky tannins. On the palate, we have aromas of black cherry, red fruits and wild juniper berries. Les Quartz is the emblem of the generosity, the power and the elegance of the estate’s soils of round pebbles on sand.
The much-lauded Le Clos du Caillou produces classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines that just keep getting better, year-on-year. The domaine is situated on the edge of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and is unique in that, in 1936, the owner (who was then away at a hunting retreat) refused to allow the experts who were drawing up the boundaries of the appellation to visit his domaine. Thus, it was not included in the delimited area and remains to this day an enclave within the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. The domaine practices biodynamic farming techniques and was certified "Agriculture Biologique" in 2010 and "Vin Biologique" in 2012. Their trademark style lies in full-bodied wines with rich red fruit flavours, velvety texture and fine tannins.
