Wines that Reveal the Richness of Legendary Sauternes

Dotted with magnificent vineyards, Domaine De Château Caillou resides in Haut-Barsac on a plateau decorated with pebbles. The estate is the true symbol of finesse and elegance reflected from its golden-colored wines with the essence of almonds, honey, and cinnamon. Château Caillou has bagged numerous awards on national and international fronts, combined with various Vinalies in the USA, China, Hong Kong, and England.

Hundred Years of the Classified Grand Crus

From one family to another, Château Caillou expresses a century-old tradition that started in 1909 by Joseph Ballan. He purchased the winery in an auction from Louis Sarraute, the former owner of the estate. Joseph Ballan had two daughters, Renée and Reine. In 1943, Reine married Joseph Bravo, and together, the couple ensured the sustainability of the winery. Later in 1997, Marie José, daughter of Reine and Joseph, married Michel Pierre and took over the estate. The couple has two sons Jean Noel and Sébastien. Since 2017, Sébastien handles all the operations of Château Caillou, from vine cultivation to wine production.

The Sweetness of the Terroirs & Aromas of Vines

Extended over 18 hectares, 90% of the vineyards are covered with Sémillon, the flagship grape variety of the estate, and the remaining 10% is cultivated with Sauvignon Blanc. Being respectful to nature, the family carries out each harvest manually. This allows them to collect the finest bunches and move to the cellar to produce award-winning white, sparkling, and dessert wines, labeled under BARSAC appellation.
