Château Caillou

The winery is located in the municipality of Barsac in the Sauternes area (Bordeaux). The name derives from the stones (cailloux) that come to the surface during ploughing and were used to fence the vineyard. Since 1969 it is owned by J. B. Bravo and Marie-José Pierre. It was classified as "Deuxième Cru Classé" in the 1855 Bordeaux classification. The vineyards cover 16 hectares with Sémillon (90%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%). The long-lasting noble sweet wine is aged for three years in regularly renewed barriques. The second wine is called "Petit Mayne".

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
