The wine comes from the oldest vines, located inside the Clos du Caillou property. The 1936 classification denotes that all vines within the Clos fall under ‘Cotes du Rhone’ appellation. However, this terroir is located closely to the “Les Bedines” and “Guigasse” vineyard sites, which fall within the Chateaunef-du-Pape appellation and provide grapes for the CNDP Reserve wine. This block is cultivated traditionally with very low yield and with techniques respecting of nature (ploughings, organic practices, minimal use of pesticides). The terroir is mainly constituted of round pebbles. The wine is a blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvedre.
"Very full, very deep, dark ruby-red with purple hues to the colour saturated at heart. This has a very firm, penetratingly intense and tightly concentrated nose, the bouquet elegantly proportioned, showing black berry fruits with savoury dark herbs and some oak lift. Full-bodied, this has a degree of elegance along with depth and power. The fruit is still very tightly bound, showing ripe black berry fruit and mineral-infused raspberries, revealing dark red florals in the glass. The palate is firm with fine-grained tannins and balanced, discreet acidity providing excellent drive and line, which carries through to a very long, sweet fruited and perfumed finish. A beautifully proportioned, tightly bound and refined Cotes du Rhone that will develop with class over the next 8-10+ years. Match with fine braised red meat dishes. 75% Grenache and 25% Mouvedre from old vines from the ‘Les Bedines' and ‘Guigasse' sites in the Clos du Caillou estate of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, fermented to 15.0% alc., the wine spending 30 days on skins and 17 months in oak. Certified AB organic. 550 dozen made".

Le Clos du Caillou is ideally located in the commune of Courthezon in the South of France. It consists of 44 hectares in Côtes du Rhône, and 9 ha in Chateauneuf du Pape appellation. Le Clos has the distinction of being located on the border with the appellation Châteauneuf du Pape. Formerly a Hunting Reserve, in 1932 when the boundaries of the first appellation were being formed, the owner refused to meet with the authorities and thus jeopardised the opportunity of being included in the AOC Chateauneuf du Pape. The vineyards are certified agriculture biologique since vintage 2010. Grapes are harvested exclusively by hand and sorted before they arrive at the winery The domain wants to go further and become biodynamic – where the winegrower must follow nine strict biodynamic principles in both the agricultural aspect and the handling of the fruit. These practices are strictly scrutinised by the governing body - the Demeter Association - before the wine can be legally classified as ‘agriculture biodynamique’.

Pale golden straw in colour with vibrant green hues, the Oxford Landing Estates Chardonnay has lifted aromas of freshly ripe stone fruit with hints of grapefruit and lemon myrtle. Layers of flavour build across the palate that reflect the use of wild fermentation and ageing on yeast lees. The slightest hint of oak comes through as a hint of vanilla, highlighting the complexity derived from barrel matured reserve wine. The wine has a wonderfully even texture on the palate with balanced acidity offering a crisp, clean wine with persistent and tantalising mineral acidity. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.Grapes: ChardonnayRegion: South... Read More
"Gentle and nicely fruited, this medium-bodied cabernet shows dark berry, game, mixed spice and dried herb aromas on the nose, leading to a juicy palate that is rounded and smooth.
