Château Caillou 2018 – Sauternes

The nose is finely tight and offers freshness, a fine deepness as well as a fine intensity. It reveals notes of candied lemon, candied yuzu and small notes of kumquat associated with fine touches of pineapple, green apple as well as a hint of apple flowers. The palate is fresh, fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, gourmandize, tension, precision as well as a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of candied lemon, cristallized mandarine and small notes of cristallized kumquat associated with small touches of dry apricot, vine peach as well as fine hints of apple flowers, a discreet hint of verbena, botrytis, bee wax and an imperceptible hint of nutmeg (in the background). Goog length. There are hints of almond, fruits as well as a very discreet hint of flowers and vanilla on the persistence.
