A 4th Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Chateau Talbot is one of the most iconic references of the Medoc. Acquired by Desire Cordier in 1918, Chateau Talbot is today managed by Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her husband, Jean-Paul Bignon.
5.2 hectares of the Chateau Talbot vineyard are dedicated to the production of Caillou Blanc, the property's white wine.
Caillou Blanc by Chateau Talbot pays tribute to Georges Cordier who had the idea of replanting white grape varieties in the Medoc at the end of the 1930s. Caillou Blanc of Chateau Talbot invites you to discover the expression of a Bordeaux dry white wine, endowed with very fresh aromas and a beautiful liveliness on the palate.
Vinification and aging
The hand-picked grapes are sorted in the vineyard and then vinified 100% in barrels, 30% of which are new. The wine is aged for 8 months on the lees with stirring.
Chateau Talbot's Caillou Blanc 2021 comprises a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (73%) and Semillon (27%).
