Château Caillou 2014 – Sauternes Grand Cru Classé

Château Caillou 2014 – Sauternes Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, elegant, well-balanced and offers a slight unctuosity as well as a slight freshness. It reveals notes of peach in syrup associated with small notes of candied lemon, vanilla and small toasted notes as well as an imperceptible hint of almond. The palate is fruity, fresh, well-balanced, slightly tight and offers a slight acid frame, a slight freshness, minerality, fat as well as unctuosity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of candied lemon, compoted/crushed peach and slight notes of candied mandarin associated with a hint of vanilla, a subtle hint of roasted pineapple as well as a very discreet toasted hint/sweet spices. Good length. There are slight notes of candied lemon and a very discreet hint of apricot puree on the persistence.
