Blend: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon
From: Bordeaux, France
Taste and Critical Acclaim: “This vineyard, an oasis in the urban sprawl of Bordeaux, has produced a classic wine. With beautifully textured fruit cut with a zing of citrus and underlined by the wood aging, the wine is set to age.” –Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 93 points
"Mineral and serious white with aromas of dried apples, lemons, dried jasmine, anise, cedar and crushed almonds. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity and a vibrant, energetic palate. Spicy and tangy and full of flavor.” –James Suckling, 92 points
Pairing: The heady, supple flavors and mouthfeel of this classic white Bordeaux will be a wonderful complement to the sweet, herby richness found in this recipe for Sweet Pea Ravioli with Lobster from Tasting Table.
About. The name Caillou refers to pebbles, reflecting the fact that this was once riverbed, when the river Garonne overflowed millions of years ago. The characteristic elegance and finesse of this wine is attributed to its free-draining, gravelly soil and subsoil. Lovely, gentle grassiness and wet-stone minerality, with enough weight to give this real substance.
