DOMAINE LE SANG DES CAILLOUX

LVT 2017 r 2016 wh Top name, organic for years, biodynamic since 2011. Lopy is the top wine, made every year, and is the first selection from his cellar. There is also Oumeto, which can be 100% old Grenache (mainly 1940s), and is produced in limited 1,500 bottle amounts. The title of the principal red wine rotates as Serge names it after his three daughters, one year at a time. So Floureto was the title in 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, 2004, 2001 etc. The other two are Doucinello (2017, 2014 etc) and Azalaïs (2015, 2012 etc). Serge officially "retired" on 1 October 2015, having arrived on the domaine in 1979. His son Frédéri is very enthusiastic about the vineyard, and is working well. He is gradually reducing the old Syrah for the Lopy wine, stating, quite correctly, that the Plateau de Garrigues is too hot for it. This is very much in the top three domaines of Vacqueyras, and the wines can be cellared for a couple of decades.
