The Winery

Domaine le Clos du Caillou

"The wines are superb across the board and lean towards the fruit end of spectrum, with beautifully pure flavors and supple textures being the name of the game."
-The Rhone Report

Le Clos du Caillou dates back to at least the first part of the 20th century. However, the modern era for Clos du Caillou began when it was purchased in 1956 by the Pouizin family. The domaine was managed by Claude Pouzin until 1995. At that point in time, the Sylvie, the daughter of Claude Pouizin and her husband, Jean-Denis Vacheron began to run the estate, taking Clos du Caillou in a new direction. Tragically, Jean-Denis Vacheron died in an accident in 2002. While the property has a history in Chateauneuf du Pape, the reason there are no great older vintages, or any older vintages for that matter is simple, Until 1993, they sold the majority of their harvest to negociants.
