     Clos du Caillou
A top CNDP estate, making excellent wines, with depth and finesse.
     
26 75cl Cotes du Rhone
'La Reserve'
Clos du Caillou

RP/Joe Czerwinski -
The pick of the Côte du Rhône lineup is the 2015 Cotes du Rhone La Reserve. A blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Mourvèdre aged in demi-muids, it shows hints of vanilla and baking spices to go along with red plums and black cherries. It's supple on the mid-palate and velvety on the finish, showing ample richness and length.
2015 £29.00 RP/JC91

Great Value - Highly Recommended

           
    DOMAINE 
MONTIRIUS

This is a Top Domaine making
organic Gigondas wines - Highly Recommended.
     
20 75cl Gigondas
'Confidentiel'
Domaine Montirius

RP/Jeb Dunnuck -
The 2015 Gigondas Confidentiel is the smallest production cuvee and is 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre brought up all in concrete. It has beautiful purity in its ripe plum and blackberry fruits, violets and mint aromatics. These give way to a medium to full-bodied, rounded and beautifully textured Gigondas that will benefit from a year or two in bottle and keep for a decade.
2015 £38.00 RP/JD92

75cl Pic Saint Loup
Clos du Pic

Chateau Puech-Haut

RP/Joe Czerwinski - My favourite of the various parcel selections from this outstanding estate was the 2016 Pic Saint Loup Clos du Pic, a Syrah-Mourvèdre blend. It reveals classy aromas of baking spices, crushed stone and violets, backing those up with flavours of raspberries, strawberries and plums. It's full-bodied but complex, with a long finish framed by fine-grained tannins.

2016 £48.00

Les Glorieuses
is one of their top cuvees, and is certainly worth trying.

75cl Les Glorieuses
Coteaux du Languedoc
Pic Saint-Loup
 Clos Marie

RP/David Schildknecht - Representing co-fermented, 100% vendange entier Syrah-Grenache, and tasted from the 1,300-liter Stockinger round and 1,500 litre oval foudres in which its totality matures, the Clos Marie 2010 Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup Les Glorieuses delivers a floral profusion (rose, wisteria, iris); saliva gland-liberating salinity; deeply rich red meatiness; and detonative, reverberative interaction of concentrated dark berries with peat and stone that left me practically dizzy. Nut oils, herbal essences, iodine, and iron filings add to the dazzling complexity on exhibit in this finely-textured example of the dynamic equilibrium of richness and vivacity, density and refinement that is singularly possible in 2010. Look for the better part of two decade’s attentive enjoyment and wonder.

2010 £66.00
