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.

« The 2018 Caillou de Talbot Blanc has been bottled since May. It has a stricter and more mineral driven bouquet compared to the 2017, scents of honeysuckle and white peach mixed with almond and hazelnut. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity considering the warmth of the late summer. Orange pith and apricot towards the finish with a tang of stem ginger on the finish. Very fine. » Rated 88-90/100.

    Château Talbot (Saint-Julien) also owns the Domaine Saint-Andrieu in Provence on the heights of Brignoles, with vines (19 ha) producing white and rosé wines of Provence.

    But also some 2500 olive trees on 10 ha allowing the production of an exceptional extra virgin olive oil in confidential quantities. Two varieties of olive trees (undergoing organic conversion for two years, certified for the next harvest in 2022) are used: the Aglandau, for its strength and smoothness, with aromas of fresh artichoke, and the Salonenque for its sweetness and subtle aromas of green almond, green apple and cut hay.

    An exceptional oil, all the more ardent because it is the new 2021 harvest pressed last December.
