Built in 1755, Château Picque Caillou is located on the outskirts of the city of Bordeaux in the historic Pessac-Léognan appellation, the cradle of local winegrowing.
A close neighbour of the prestigious château Haut-Brion and Pape Clément, Pique Caillouhas stony soil which produces classy, elegant wines with excellent ageing potential.
In 2007, Paulin Calvet took over management and injected new life into the estate. That same year, consultingoenologists Professor Denis Dubourdieu and Madame Valerie Lavigne began providing technical assistance to the new team. Their combined efforts have resulted in a first-class wine of remarkable balance and delicacy.
