- Clos Du Caillou Cotes Du Rhone Bouquet Des Garrigues 2012 Product #28890 (In Stock)
Always one of our very favorite Cotes du Rhones, and in 2012 a wine that outshines many much more expensive Chateauneuf du Pape! It’s a blend of 85% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre, all aged in tank and neutral barrel. Grenache raspberry and sweet cherry aromas and flavors take center stage, but there’s plenty of black olive tapenade, crushed herb, and black pepper complexity. Very pure, very delicious.
“The 2012 Cotes du Rhone Bouquet des Garrigues is a brilliant looking tank sample. Aged all in foudre, it offers up ripe, pure notes of crushed stone, pepper and earthy notes to go with both red and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and textured, with sweet tannin, it’s one serious Cotes du Rhone that will evolve for 4-7 years. Drink 2014-2021.”Wine Advocate 90-92 points
