Natalie's Review

Château Le Caillou Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1998, A.C., Pomerol, Bordeaux, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Château Le Caillou is a tiny 7-hectare property that is principally located atop the gravelly Pomerol plateau. Producing a mere 3,000 cases a year, Château Le Caillou is known for creating richly textured wines featuring well-integrated tannins. The aromas and flavors are of ripe plum, fruit-cake, and black cherries complemented by notes of cedar and spice. Hailing from the Right Bank’s last great vintage of the 1990s, this Pomerol is an exceptional value. My note: Classic Bordeaux with smoky black fruit: blackberry, cassis and blackcurrant. A robust knowledge of oak has asserted itself in the education of this wine, but not to its detriment. Chewy tannins mean decant for 2 hours or better yet, age it.
