DOMAINE LES CAILLOUX "Les Cailloux" Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2013

(Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône Valley, France) $55

Great Châteauneuf-du-Pape has a lusciousness and beauty that is show stopping. And Les Cailloux (“The Round Rocks”) from the Brunel family is one of the best.  Penetrating and intense, it rides on rich waves of ripe dark fruits, violets, and white peppery spice. There’s a wildness and energy to this wine, as if something untamed was suddenly unleashed. But there’s also exquisite finesse. Wines of this distinctiveness, at this price, should not be missed.
