Based on Sauvignon (with a hint of Semillon), Caillou Blanc has been presented for 50 years as the archetype of Médoc dry white wine: pale colour, between delicate freshness and aromatic distinction (citrus fruits, bitter orange, honeysuckle), never too full or demonstrative. And always reasonably positioned in terms of price.
Martin (Vinous) : 90/100 « The 2020 Caillou de Talbot Blanc, bottled a month prior to my visit, has a pretty lime and grapefruit scented nose. Hints of white tea emerge with time. The palate is well balanced with almond and caramelized pear notes, a touch of stem ginger emerging with time. Quite spicy, somehow, I can imagine this partnering Asian food with style thank to a scintilla of Muscat lingering on the aftertaste. »
