Can I make a 10:08 AM train from Paris' Gare d'Austerlitz if my flight's arrival time to CDG is 7:45 AM?

This is on Saturday, May 20. I've done the CDG-Austerlitz connection before, but I forget how long it takes. Our flight arrives at 7:45 AM (scheduled) to CDG Terminal 1, and then we're planning to take a cab to Austerlitz to catch a 10:08 train south. I'm thinking it's possible, but risky. What do you think, Parisians and travellers?
I figure an hour to deal with disembarking, luggage, and customs, then 45 minutes cab ride to Austerlitz, leaving 30 minutes of spare time. Does this sound right?
I know a lot of the factors are variable depending on weather and what's going on on that day, but any advice you can give is welcome. The next train isn't until 16:47, so we'd rather not wait unless we have to.
