Château Penin, Les Cailloux Bordeaux Supérieur AC 6x 75cl

France, 2020

Patrick CarteyronThe Bordeaux appellation encompasses well over 100,000 hectares of vines spread over 50 appellations. The vast majority of these vineyards produce simple, easy-going, value-for-money wines that virtually no one talks about. Simple, easy-going wines? One man was not willing just to go with the flow and set out to prove that it is possible to make great wines under the Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur appellations. This man is Patrick Carteyron. In 1982, he took over Château Penin, an estate that had been in his family for five generations and now occupies 45 hectares of land around 50 kilometres to the east of the city of Bordeaux. 45 hectares is very little in these parts, but within those 45 hectares there are countless variations in terroir that yield completely different wines. To take account of this diversity, he produces ten different cuvées. Every wine typifiesa different terroir, a different style and is suitable for a different occasion, Patrick explains enthusiastically. Les Cailloux is a small, 2-hectare plot at the foot of a hill and consists of gravel on top of a layer of clay. The gravel ensures the vines are warm and well drained, while the clay guarantees they always have sufficient moisture. This is what accounts for the particularly fruity quality of the outstanding Les Cailloux 2020.
