    Winemaker's Notes:

    The reserve has a beautiful black robe with violet reflections. We discover a licorice nose, blueberry jam and wild myrtle associated with mocha. The mouth is ample, silky on black fruit, tobacco spices and powerful cloves. Final notes of cocoa bean.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Really packed but supersilky, with a gorgeous beam of raspberry ganache gliding over super fine-grained tannins, while notes of incense, blackberry preserve, bittersweet chocolate truffle and black tea fill in the background. Seamless and very long. Best from 2009 through 2030. 550 cases made.

    Inky ruby. Alluring perfume of red and dark berries, cinnamon, incense and fresh flowers. Lush, creamy and sweet, offering palate-coating dark berry flavors and a sweet lavender pastille quality. Expands and gains depth and energy on the finish, leaving behind zesty cherry and berry skin and bitter chocolate notes. Extremely impressive and built to age.

    International Wine Cellar

    Blueberry, blackberry, charcoal, licorice, and a touch of smoked meats are present in the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Clos du Caillou Reserve. It possesses the densest, most saturated color of the 2006s as well as abundant fruit, a full-bodied, powerful mouthfeel, a concentrated, multilayered texture, and a 40-45-second finish. A top-notch effort for the vintage, this beauty should age easily for 15+ years.
