Château Caillou 2022 – Barsac, Grand Cru Classé

Nice elegant, racy, well-built nose which offers a certain complexity, minerality as well as a fine stretchiness. We find notes of candied orange, kumquat and small notes of small bright yellow fruits associated with touches of nutmeg, small roasted fruits as well as hints of racy/gravelly minerality. The palate is fruity, balanced and offers minerality, a lovely freshness, tension, a certain accuracy, energy, a fine straightness as well as a tangy structure. On the palate this wine expresses notes of orangette, kumquat and slight notes of candied/crushed apple associated with touches of pulpy/acidulous brugnon, small yellow fruits, hints of roasted pineapple as well as fine hints zest and racy minerality. Good length. Lovely freshness and racy minerality. A fine spicy hint on the persistence.
