ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
This estate, with its numerous excellent bottlings, is on a serious roll. Wines from Le Clos du Caillou are Rhône blends at their most intense- Concentrated and richly textured, these organically raised wines capture the spice of older-vine Grenache as grown on the region’s finest terroirs.The estate has been practicing biodynamic viticulture since 2003, and was certified organic in 2010. Caillou’s devotion to the character of the land (through bottling wines according to terroir) and its dedication to natural viticulture has only intensified over the years; this is what makes Caillou one of the leading estates in the southern Rhône.
