Château Caillou Sauternes 2016 Half Bottle
Château Caillou is a beautifully-balanced dessert wine from a leading Sauternes estate. Mainly barrel-aged botrytised Sémillon and a little Sauvignon, this has sweet, tropical fruit, vanilla & barley sugar notes.
Château Caillou is located in the region of "Haut-Barsac" with 13 hectares classified as Grand Cru Classé. Its mixture of chalk, clay and red sand soil are ideally suited to the Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown. In the right climatic conditions, sémillon is known for developing the famous botrytis cinerea or "noble rot" which gives these majestic wines of Sauternes their fine sweet taste of honeyed marmalade and spice aromas. Sauvignon adds fresh crispness lending additional citrus lemon and exotic fruit notes. Gold Medal Vignerons Indépendants France 2017.
