  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    A strong proportion of Sauvignon Blanc (70%) is well represented in this bright and zesty wine, with aromas of blackcurrant sorbet, blood orange and pink grapefruit. An invigorating clarity and liveliness keep the palate alert and fulfilled.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 89-91

    Bright citrus, sliced apple, and honeyed mint all emerge from the 2022 Château Picque Caillou Blanc, a medium-bodied, lively, elegant white with outstanding potential.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 17

    This is one of the brightest and most refreshing of the Pessac crew, and the purity and drive mean that it will drink well from the off. With seven months in barrels, there is even a degree of midpalate gravitas that slides by in style.

Region

Pessac-Léognan

Stretching from the rather unglamorous southern suburbs of Bordeaux, for 50 km along the left bank of the river Garonne, lies Graves. Named for its gravelly soil, a relic of Ice Age glaciers, this is the birthplace of claret, despatched from the Middle Ages onwards from the nearby quayside to England in vast quantities. It can feel as though Bordeaux is just about red wines, but some sensational white wines are produced in this area from a blend of sauvignon blanc, Semillon and, occasionally, muscadelle grapes, often fermented and aged in barrel. In particular, Domaine de Chevalier is renowned for its superbly complex whites, which continue to develop in bottle over decades. A premium appellation, Pessac-Leognan, was created in 1987 for the most prestigious terroirs within Graves. These are soils with exceptional drainage, made up of gravel terraces built up in layers over many millennia, and consequently thrive in mediocre vintages but are less likely to perform well in hotter years. These wines were appraised and graded in their own classification system in 1953 and updated in 1959, but, like the 1855 classification system, this should be regarded with caution and the wines must absolutely be assessed on their own current merits.
