Rhone Report 95
"A brilliant Châteauneuf-du-Pape that should not be missed is the 2010 Les Cailloux Châteauneuf-du-Pape! A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and 10% Syrah (with only the Syrah being aged in smaller, new barrels), it has put on weight since I tasted it last year and offers up a spectacular array of spiced red fruits, garrigue, small flowers, licorice, and toast on the nose to go with a full-bodied, layered and perfectly proportioned mouth feel. This complex, seamless, and rich Châteauneuf-du-Pape will age effortlessly for two decades!"

"The Les Cailloux 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as lots of gamy, meaty notes intermixed with bouquet garni, licorice, black currants and kirsch, Spicy, fat, fleshy and evolved and forward for a 2010, this full-throttle, hedonistic and intellectually pleasing Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 10-14 years."
