2015 Château Picque Caillou Grand Vin de Graves Pessac-Léognan (750ml)



WE94 Wine Enthusiast Just on the edge of the urban sprawl of Bordeaux, this estate has managed to retain its vineyard despite the housing pressure. This year it is beautifully structured, dense and very stylish. Black-currant fruit, some firm tannins and balance make this wine so attractive. JS93 James Suckling Attractive dark blackcurrants, violets, cedar and loganberries with hints of spiced raisins. There’s ample depth to the fine tannins. Bright, effusive dark fruit flavors with a light finish. Pauline Calvet's Picque Caillou estate is situated between Haut Brion and Merignac airport. It has been on a fine run of form and often tops more illustrious names from the Pessac commune. Produced from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot and aged in 40% new oak barrels.
