Chateau Picque Caillou 2016 Magnum

Picque-Caillou, owned and run by Paulin and Isabelle Calvet abuts the city of Bordeaux, next to Mérignac airport. Its other near neighbours include Chx. Pape-Clément and Haut Brion - terroir not to be sniffed at! A classic cassis and blackberry-scented claret with mocha notes - really suits the magnum format for relaxed family gatherings

"The name Picque-Caillou (small stone) refelects the Gunz gravels on which 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot are planted for the red. The wine is classically made (the name Calvet would suggest as much for those with long memories - a very old Bordeaux name) and aged for 12 months in 30% new wood. The fruit is textured and scented, with hints of undergrowth. The tannins are present though fine-grained here - good. "
