from Chateau Caillou in Barsac
"Noble Rot"... how could something sounding so bad produce something tasting so good? Visit Chateau Caillou to taste their Sauterne, a wine carrying the prestigious classification of Grand Cru Classe 1855. Oh, and they pick their grapes entirely by hand... maybe they could use some additional help if you are visiting in September.
