Description

Sauvignon Blanc 73%, and Sémillon 27%.

Always something of an individual wine, Talbot’s Caillou Blanc was one of the first whites to be produced in the Médoc. It has a powerful earthiness at its heart; it is harvested a bit later than its neighbours for that extra bit of richness. The cooler 2021 moderates this a little, but the drive is still there. A punchy but well-defined bouquet with notes of verbena and lime blossom is supported by a layered palate of pithy, waxy citrus fruit.

Drink 2023 - 2028
