Floral, deep black fruit and a hint of licorice on the nose. Austere and slightly bitter, with good balance and more red fruit than black on the palate. Very nice.

Asparagus, sulfury and bitter. Smelled like a cabernet with notes of over-cooked veggies.

Near prestigious Château Haut Brion, Château Picque Caillou's 20-hectare vineyard stands at the entrance to Bordeaux, birthplace of legendary appellation. Driven by Paulin and Isabelle Calvet, this gravel terroir has all the advantages for making a great wine data management, plot monitoring, vinification in harmony with the terroir and vintage, and rigourous selection.Thus is born a pedrigree wine, balanced and elegant, highly charasteristic of the values of the Pessac-Léognan appellation.

Ripe fruits with hints of tobacco and mineral, the 2000 Picque Caillou offers a wonderful expression of red Graves that is ready to drink but could certainly be kept for 3-5 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Der Rebberg liegt auf kieshaltigem, steinigem Boden inmitten der Vororte von Bordeaux und umfasst 12 ha. Das Durchschnittsalter der Rebstcke liegt bei 30 Jahren. Eine fruchtig-herbe Aromatik und dezente Noten von Leder mit einem Hauch von Vanille offenbaren sich in der Nase. Die kräftige Textur von reifem Tannin und die fruchtige Säure ist im Gaumen gut eingebunden. Eine schne Frucht und ein langer Abgang verraten Volumen und Kraft.
