Georges Cordier, the grandfather of the current owners, loved white wines. He was one of the first to replant white wine in the Médoc. With a majority of Sauvignon, and a hint of Sémillon, Caillou blanc is raised in the manner of a Burgundy. The wine is very aromatic, with a lively personality and responsiveness one finds again and again through all the vintages.
Legend relates that the name of this imposing estate originates with Connétable Talbot, a famous English warrior, defeated at the battle of Castillon in 1453. Talbot is one of the Medoc’s oldest estates, its glory never tainted. Through the years it has been fortunate enough to remain in good hands. The owners are Nancy Bignon- Cordier and her family. They are the fifth generation of Cordiers to manage this Saint- Julien fourth classified growth.
