DOMAINE LE CLOS DE CAVEAU

LVT 2018 r 2014 rosé 2017 wh  6 hectares have been sold, reducing to 14 hectares, 12 of them Vacqueyras. The domaine has been organic since 1989. I helped on the 1974 harvest! This is a good address, the wines coming with all-important character. The Vacqueyras fruit sauvage red was a discreet, textured **** Thinker's wine in 2015, a cool, well balanced **** wine in 2016, and a wine with a flared bull's nostril effect in a colourful, challenging **** 2018. A Gigondas red has recently been added, the 2018 a **** sparkly, polished, well balanced wine, ahead of many in that tricky year. A very good Vacqueras white, 80% Grenache blanc, 20% Clairette was introduced from vines planted in 2010-12, the 2017 a **** wine; it is raised in oak.
