"Tasted from a barrel sample at en primeur. A blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon picked between 3 and 11 September, this has a very attractive nose of lemon peel, apricot blossom and a faint touch of toffee apple. The palate is nicely balanced with subtle tropical notes on the entry, dried apricot and a touch of white peach that inform the spicy finish. This is a very good white from Pique-Caillou.

2013 Chateau Picque Caillou Blanc Pessac Leognan

"A blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon, the Pique Caillou Blanc has attractive, pear and lime flower scents on the nose, the two grapes varieties complementing each other well. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, edgy with a citric note from start to finish that is elegant and subtle. This is a commendable wine from Paulin Calvet."

"Barrel Sample. Full and ripe, this is a fine wine. It has rich fruit notes of apricot and kiwi, with fresh acidity on the finish. The wood aging gently brushes the aftertaste."
