Estate

Chateau Picque Caillou is located at the gates of the city of Bordeaux in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, the Bordeaux vineyard’s historic cradle. A close neighbor of the prestigious Haut-Brion and Pape Clément chateaux, this 21-hectare vineyard carries a name indicative of its pebbly soils that originated from sediments deposited by the nearby Garonne River over thousands of years. In 2006, Paulin Calvet took over the daily running of the vineyard, breathing new life into the estate and giving it new impetus. The wines of Picque Caillou quickly acquired higher levels of quality and consistency, soon attracting the attention of numerous wine professionals. It was in 2007 that consultant enologists Professor Denis Dubourdieu and Valérie Lavigne joined the winemaking team, bringing their technical rigor and skill. And so a top quality wine was born. A wine that displays superb balance and delicacy, reflecting perfectly the values of the prestigious Pessac-Léognan appellation.
