A Grand Vin in white from the Medoc

A Grand Vin in white from the Medoc, the Caillou Blanc is produced by a prestigious property of the Saint-Julien appellation, the Grand Cru Classe Château Talbot.

At the head of one of the largest vineyards in Bordeaux’s Left Bank, Chateau Talbot manages 5.2 hectares of white grape vines, planted in Medoc gravel soils.

The Caillou Blanc 2018 from Chateau Talbot is made from a blend dominated by Sauvignon Blanc (69%), supplemented by Semillon (31%). This white Grand Vin from the Medoc is produced in the Bordeaux Blanc Sec appellation, and is aged in oak barrels, of which 40% is new.

Parker : 89-91 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Caillou Blanc de Talbot comes bounding out of the glass with bold, tropical scents of fresh pineapples and passion fruit plus hints of lemongrass and ginger. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is ripe and seductive with just enough freshness and a long, tropical finish.
