Tasting Note:

As ever Sauvignon Blanc dominated (90% with the 10% balance made up of Semillon). Pique Caillou is perennially one of the bargain whites of Bordeaux. Cropped much lower (33 hl/ha) than its reasonable price tag suggests this offers tremendous purity, vim and vigour. Racy but even-keeled this boasts a seamless, lively palate that bristles with grapefruit, Sicilian lemon, lime zest and alpine herb character. Though appealingly breezy and refreshing at first glance, there is more so much more to this than simple, primary fruit. A great effort. Aged for 7 months sur lie in 25% new barriques.
