The Oddbins Take

One translation of Château Haut-Caillou is ‘The House of the High Bald Head’ which, in our admittedly warped imagination, conjures up a slow-speaking, Lurch-type character, swaying unsteadily up to the door to greet any unfortunate visitors. However, another translation is ‘the house of the high pebbles’, which makes a bit more sense, as this is the preferred terrain of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that contribute to this Merlot-dominated blend. The net result of these high-pebbled vines is a wine that’s deep in colour, with flashes of crimson and a rich, clean nose, combining aromas of redcurrant and subtle oaky notes. It is full-bodied, with fine tannins and a markedly soft texture.
