April 27, 2017

2017-clos-du-caillou

The domaine Le Clos du Caillou is on a roll, the wines tasted superbly in the 2015 vintage… It was also the 1st time that Marilou Vacheron (Sylvie’s daughter) hosted the tasting… at 23 years Marilou knows what she is talking about and is very precise, I asked her when was the 1st time she tasted wine… She answered me it was when she was 4 years old!! That explains…  🙂   Their top wines “La Reserve” in Côtes du Rhone and Chateauneuf are out of this world and absolut MUST HAVE  for serious collectors!!
