The 2011 Caillou has a light nose of lime cordial and freshly cut Satsumas, and it grows in stature with aeration to reveal subtle tropical notes. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry that is cut through by a silver thread of acidity, rendering the residual sugar barely perceptible. It is extremely taut and focused with a very precise finish. This Barsac second growth has good potential and should drink well over twenty years. Drink 2013-2030. Wine Advocate.April, 2012

A wine with dried oranges and spices with hints of lemon. Full body, with medium sweetness and a spicy finish. Intense botrytis character on the finish. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Remarkably knit and defined already, with bright, mouthwatering peach, apricot, persimmon and piecrust flavors. Long and pure. A beautiful wine. Good to see this estate back in the action. It made a terrific 2001, but has been quiet lately. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Unusual aromas of petrol combined with the expected peach and honey. Zingy on the front palate, but gathers weight along with some spice at the back. A touch bitter on the finish. FINE+RARE
