Domaine du Caillou Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The property came in possession of the Pouizin family in 1956. Until 1996 the property was run by Claude Pouizin, who until 1993 sold most of his yield to negociants. In 1996 his daugther Sylvie and son-in-law Jean-Denis Vacherons came in charge and the quality of the wines from property rapidly went up. Wine experts especially from USA discovered the new style of the wines and prices and export rose quickly. In the spring 2002 Jean-Denis Vacherons was killed in a traffic accident. Today Sylvie runs the property. She gets help from clever people as the wine maker Bruno Gaspard and the oenolog Philippe Cambie and the quality of the wines are thus in safe hands.
