Clos du Caillou Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Quartz 2010
Even better, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz offers additional depth and richness, with ample dark fruits, blackberry, crushed rock and edgy minerality giving way to a full-bodied, big, powerful wine that won’t hit prime-time for another 3-4 years. When all is said and done, it will have two decades of longevity.
This is fruit in hyperdrive, with a torrent of crushed blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry flavors rushing along, laced with sweet licorice and fruitcake and driving through the long, very polished finish, where a nice echo of charcoal keeps it honest. Really gorgeous. Drink now through 2025.
Saturated ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of dark fruit liqueur, potpourri and garrigue, with smoke and spice overtones. Showing an impressive blend of power and energy, with sappy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become spicier in the glass. Closes with serious punch, velvety tannins and lingering spice and dark fruit notes.
