International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 142

($180; 60% grenache and 20% each of mourvedre and syrah) Inky ruby. Alluring perfume of red and dark berries, cinnamon, incense and fresh flowers. Lush, creamy and sweet, offering palate-coating dark berry flavors and a sweet lavender pastille quality. Expands and gains depth and energy on the finish, leaving behind zesty cherry and berry skin and bitter chocolate notes. Extremely impressive and built to age.

Bright crimson. Very heady – the first wine that really sings of the garrigue. Spicy too – most mulled wine in its flavours! Definite cinnamon there… Lots of effort here. Lovely tannins – so ripe yet present, Very rich and flattering.

Wine Advocate Author: Jeb Dunnuck Issue: 214

Seemingly more reserved and rustic (probably because it followed the 2007), the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Le Clos du Caillou (60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah) offers impressive richness and depth, with plenty of toasted spice, licorice, wild herbs and earthy, dark fruits. Relatively closed for a '06, it nevertheless has serious concentration, plenty of texture and no shortage of underlying structure. Give it another year or three and drink it through 2026.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth Issue: Web

Really packed but supersilky, with a gorgeous beam of raspberry ganache gliding over super fine-grained tannins, while notes of incense, blackberry preserve, bittersweet chocolate truffle and black tea fill in the background. Seamless and very long.
