The 2016 Clos du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape is simply sensational. It begins with gorgeous fresh and inviting aromas of raspberries and wild red berries which are woven together with fresh lavender, herbs, orange zest, dried spices and wet stones all emerging from the glass. This possesses a lovely medium body, with beautiful round tannins that slide seamlessly across the palate. Balanced and concentrated this also demonstrates remarkable precision and focus through the long spice-tinged finish. This is outstanding now but will also go on to have a brilliant future.
