Chateau Picque Caillou is the Work of a Well-Known Architect – Jean Laclotte

Perched on the Bordeaux city entrance, Picque Caillou is a historical winery located in Pessac-Léognan, a renowned appellation in France. The winery is situated a few miles away from charming Haut-Brion and Pape Clément Châteaux, producing high-quality red and white wines from estate-owned grapes grown in an ancient vineyard.

Story of the 18th Century Castle Winery

Established in 1756 by a famous architect, Chateau Picque Caillou was initially owned by Jean Laclotte. Later, the estate became a summer home for his son, Etienne Laclotte. After Etienne died in 1812, the successive owners took over the winery and cultivated the vineyards. In 1947, a Bordeaux entrepreneur, Etienne Denis, purchased Chateau Picque Caillou. Along with his son, Alphonse Denis, he managed the winery operations for many years. Today, Etienne’s granddaughter, Isabel and her husband, Paulin Calvet, take care of the estate. Paulin came from a long line of merchants, giving the estate a wealth of experience. In 2006, he brought advanced winemaking and grape farming techniques to the winery, respecting the traditional methods side by side.

An Exceptional Terroir Cultivated with Top-Quality Grapes

Chateau Picque Caillou owns around 23 hectares of vineyards where red and white varieties are grown with the utmost care, respecting the environment and biodiversity. About 20.5 hectares are covered with premium red varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (35%), and Petit Verdot (5%). The remaining land is planted with fruity white grapes, such as Sauvignon (80%) and Sémillon (20%). Since 2007, two highly qualified and experienced oenologists, Professor Denis Dubourdieu and Valérie Lavigne, joined the team and gave a new direction to the estate’s viticulture practices.
