Domaine le Clos du Caillou 2017 Les Safres Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Editors' Choice

Just a fraction of the price of this producer's flagship bottlings, Les Safres offers unbelievable complexity and finesse. A Grenache-dominant blend sourced entirely from safre, or sandy soils, it's a gorgeously perfumed red redolent of kirsch and charred earth, boysenberry preserves and fur. Velveteen tannins and a delicate cinnamon kiss mark the finish. Beautiful already but should improve through 2030. Anna Lee C. Iijima
