Critic Notes

A focussed wine with lime blossom on the nose and beautiful placement of the apricot and tart lime flavours which dance across the palate. This offers the right balance of clean botrytis and fresh minerality and is a good success in a challenging vintage. Apr 2017, www.decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2050

RS 126 g/l, TA 3.9 g/l. Very floral nose. A little simple with a hint of bitterness on the end. Broad; tastes like a dry white bordeaux with sweetness, unusually! Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2020-2028

The 2016 Chateau Caillou appeared to be rather subdued on the nose when I tasted the barrel sample. The palate has a slight bitter edge on the entry, although it improves towards the finish with tangy marmalade complementing the honeyed fruit. This was a little difficult to read at this embryonic stage, but it should come together once in bottle.
