Caillou 2021 Chateauneuf Is Spectacular

Jul 3, 2023

Happy Fourth extended weekend – quick shout out for Le Clos du Caillou 2021 Chateauneuf-du-Pape reds that are now IN STOCK and are absolutely fantastic wines!

The NBI team in France just tasted these wines a week ago at the estate and they really are outstanding — the intensity and spice of the south are here in spades, with a refreshing lift and kick that makes them such a pleasure to savor. We were all blown away and believe that once clients taste these wines, they’ll be blown away too!

Great notes from Vinous’ Nicolas Greinacher, June 2023.


Le Clos du Caillou
2021 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge ‘Les Safres’
“… reveals enticing red fruit aromas mingled with tomato leaf and cloves. Velvety tannins envelope this full bodied red, balanced by fresh acidity and culminating in a savory finish.”


Le Clos du Caillou
2021 Châteauneuf-du-Pape ‘Les Quartz’
“… displays a fragrant perfume of red currant, cranberry, raspberry, dried herbs, white pepper and a dazzling floral element of rose petals. On the palate, it is full-bodied, concentrated and tightly structured with a muscular profile framed by ripe tannins. Perfectly balanced by lively acids, there’s excellent persistence on the long finish.”


Le Clos du Caillou
2021 Châteauneuf-du-Pape ‘La Reserve’
“… turned out magnificently and is one of the highlights of the vintage … Attractive aromas of predominantly red fruits, crushed flowers, thyme and exotic spices waft from the glass. It seamlessly lingers across the palate, dazzling with polished tannins and excellent freshness. The persistent finish is remarkable, with new flavors emerging long after the wine has left.”
