"Full-bodied, rich and velvety in texture, a tank sample of the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Clos du Calvaire looks to be another success. I loved the purity of this cuvée's black raspberry fruit. Having been pleasantly bowled over by the performance of the wines from Vignobles Mayard in my blind tastings last year, I was glad to visit this year. Consultant Philippe Cambie has been working with the sister-run domaine since 2011, but it seems to me that quality has taken off in the past couple of years now that the vineyards are being converted to organic farming. The family owns 41 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, divided among 40 separate parcels. Sounds like a lot of tractor-driving! Élevage is in concrete or foudre, giving the fruit an opportunity to shine. This is one Châteauneuf du Pape estate where prices haven't yet caught up with the increasing quality."~Joe Czerwinski
