Tasting Note:

Pauline Calvet's Picque Caillou is a perennial favourite of ours. Situated between Haut Brion and Merignac airport, this chateau makes a habit of outclassing far more illustrious names from the Pessac commune. Produced from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot and aged in 40% new oak barrels, the bouquet has a wonderful fragrance of bright Morello cherry, crème de mûre, stony minerals and a note of potpourri. Sumptuous redcurrant and cassis, then herb infused cranberries and sweet griotte. This is a beautifully poised, bright fruited Picque Caillou. Highly recommended!
