CLOS DU CAILLOU CNP LA RESERVE 19
Jeb Dunnuck - 99 Points
"Last of the barrel samples, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Réserve is the more Mourvèdre dominated release from this team that’s brought up mostly in used demi-muids. It offers a gamey, meaty, complex bouquet of red and blue fruits, smoked game, spring flowers, and a distinct sense of minerality. With an almost Burgundian texture, this full-bodied, balanced, nicely structured 2019 is going to need at least 4-6 years of bottle age, but is pure gold. "
