Chateau Picque Caillou was built in 1780 in what was then the countryside outside of Bordeaux. The illustrious Chateau Haut Brion is just a few hundred meters away. In fact, this very terroir could be considered the historical birthplace of vineyards in Bordeaux. In 1987, thanks to the unceasing efforts of André Lurton, Pessac-Leognan was born, recognizing the region’s unique terroir. Isabelle and Paulin Calvet took over the management of the estate in 1995, and purchased it in 1997. This dynamic family has brought a fresh burst of life to this property. With the active involvement of the famous winemaker Denis Dubourdieu, Picque Caillou is now producing superb wines that win awards and accolades every year.
