A blend of purchased and estate wines, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Le Caillou is unabashedly fun to drink. Its not the most complex wine youll find, but this full-bodied effort offers vibrant cherry fruit, zesty acids and soft, velvety tannins. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

The consistent high quality of this estates wines makes it a perennial favorite of mine. New developments here include the addition of purchased wine to the entry-level cuves, without any loss of quality. Winemaker Bruno Gaspard admits 2016 is a good vintage, grinning when asked about it. "Its not too solar, not heavy," he said. The 2017s at this address boast an extra level of concentration that must be the result of the vintages low yields, yet they remain supple and balanced. Although two potentially perfect red Chteauneuf-du-Papes lead the list, dont overlook the various Ctes du Rhne bottlings, which often represent great value, or the white wines, all of which seem better every year.

 

Sylvie Vacherons sieben Hektar umfassende Weinberge liegen im nordöstlichen Teil der Appellation und grenzen an Beaucastel. Die Weinberge werden biologisch organisch bearbeitet (seit 2010 zertifiziert) und sind überwiegend in der Umstellung zur Biodynamie. Auf Grund eines Missgeschicks einer früheren Generation der Familie (der nur kurzfristig denkende Großvater konnte so Steuern sparen!) wurde ein Großteil des 'Quartz-Chateauneuf-du-Pape'- Rebberges als Cotes du Rhone ausgewiesen. Somit gibt es extrem wenig Chateauneuf, aber einen genialen Cotes du Rhone. Der auf den tragischen Tod von Monsieur Vacheron folgende Kellermeister und Weingutsregisseur Bruno Gaspard ist zwar als Typ weniger explosiv und extrovertiert, als Weinmacher aber eher noch talentierter und das Terroir behutsamer interpretierend. Die Jahrgänge 2004 bis 2006, vielleicht auch 2007, steigern sich qualitativ von Jahr zu Jahr. Die Weine zeigen bewundernswerte Reinheit sowie reichlich tiefe, alkoholstarke, reiche und berauschende Frucht und erregen im besten Fall erhebliches Aufsehen. In Sachen Feinheit, Mineralität und Terroirausdruck gibt es wenig Steigerungsmöglichkeit an der Rhone. Der Wein wird 12 bis 18 Monate in Foudres und zum Teil in Barriques (Syrah) ausgebaut und unfiltriert abgefüllt. Die Weine von Clos du Caillou sind ungeheuer verführerische, duftige, samtig strukturierte, körperreiche Tropfen von ausgezeichneter Farbe und vielschichtiger, üppiger Frucht.
