Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Chateau Le Caillou is a deep ruby with garnet hue, the nose shows spicy black fruit, dark chocolate, smoked meat, leather, and earthiness. Dry with chewy tannins, the finish displays dark berries, plum, and dark chocolate. Enjoy with lamb or roast beef. Tasted September 2015. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Brought to us by Giraud-Bélivier, Proprietor, this Bordeaux red wine blend is an attractive garnet hue in the glass. Black cherry and black currant on the nose with polished tannins on the palate. The French winery of Château Le Caillou is a small estate, making only 3,000 cases a year from just 7 hectares of vineyards planted in the gravel soils of the Pomerol plateau on the Right Bank of the Gironde River. The average age of the winery's vines is 30 years old. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
