Chateau Caillou 2005

Chateau Caillou – 2nd Growth Barsac

Bill Blatch: This Barsac château has quietly been making some excellent wines since the more indifferent 90s and this 05 shows what it is capable of doing in a great vintage: it is a “quieter” wine than some, very Barsac and reserved in style but intriguing in its fresh fruit balance that works gently into the softness of the wine’s body.

£243.87 / case

Wine Advocate – Score 90/100: A sleeper of the vintage.

International Wine Cellar – Score 87/100: Bright yellow-gold. Aromas of ginger.

Wine Spectator – Score 90/100: Vivid, fresh aromas of lemon peel
