Yet again another fantastic duo- this husband and wife team makes extraordinary wines.
Château Le Caillou is a seven hectare estate which has been owned by the Giraud-Belivier family since 1975 and is currently managed by André Giraud. It is located in the northwest sector (next to Château Moulinet), on a one half hectare plot on the plateau next to Château Gazin. One small parcel is located at the top of the Pomerol plateau where the soil is dense gravel-clay mixture and the other main part is in the northern part of the appellation, next to Château Moulinet, with a lighter sand and gravel terroir. The vines now average 30 years of age.
This wine has an amazing bouquet of ripe red fruits, plum and black cherry. On the palate, it has a rich texture and well-integrated tannins. Deep and fresh flavors of ripe plum, fruitcake, and black cherries are highlighted by notes of cedar and spice.
