(half grenache and half mourvedre): Inky purple. A sexy, highly perfumed bouquet displays scents of blackberry and cherry liqueur, allspice and potpourri, with a bright mineral overtone. Smells like a ripe, exotic rendition of Clos de Beze. Palate-staining red and dark berry flavors expand with air and pick up notes of spicecake and lavender pastille. The mineral quality comes back strong on an impressively long, penetrating, gently tannic finish.

The virtually perfect (probably Domaine du Caillou's greatest wine since their 2001 example) 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Le Clos du Caillou is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre aged completely in 600-liter demi-muids, of which some are new. A dense purple color is accompanied by a stunning nose of lead pencil shavings, barbecue smoke, black currant jam, raspberries and blueberries. Full-bodied and exceptionally pure, powerful and elegant, this stunning wine needs 2-4 years of cellaring and should keep for 20-25.

Stunning aromas and flavors of cassis, plum eau de vie and mulled blackberry fruit roll out here, with notes of violet, pastis, apple wood and fruitcake all coursing through the dense finish. Terrific grip is thoroughly embedded. Should cruise in the cellar.
