Talbot shows a restrained richness to the nose with black fruits and hint of pepper. In the mouth, the wine is very concentrated with tannin and acidity to match. The finish is long and promising. This is a serious, powerful Talbot which will probably merit a higher rating in time. Tasted from barrel April '07. Talbot is still quite held back in its aroma, hinting at ripe red fruits beneath. The palate has lightened somewhat during its maturation in barrel. It may take on weight in bottle, but at this stage it is an appealingly elegant Medoc. Tasted January '09. Robert Parker 89.

This impressive estate owes its name to Connétable Talbot, Commander in Chief of the English army and gouvernor of Guyenne, beaten by the french army at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453. Château Talbot is in an ideal location a short distance from the Gironde estuary. The vines grow on fine gravelly rises, which alone are capable of producing the region's great wines. Talbot is one of the most ancient estates in the Médoc. The château has fortunately passed from one competent manager to another over the centuries, and is fully worthy of its classification in 1855 as a great growth. The Cordier family has owned Talbot since the early 1900s. Several generations of the family have shown their deep understanding of the importance of quality. Traditional methods are used alongside the most modern ones. The interplay between man and nature, and an age-old understanding of this outstanding terroir, combine to make wines that are different every year, but unfailingly well-balanced and complex. Five hectares of the Talbot estate are given over to producing a dry, crisp, elegant white wine, Le Caillou Blanc

Very perfumed, with violet and currant character. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Juicy young wine. Impressive. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Talbot 1500ml

This fruity, soft, somewhat commercial, mid-weight St.-Julien offers sweet black cherry and currant fruit intermixed with subtle herb, spice box, and smoke characteristics. While not particularly concentrated, it is a round, aromatic, soft, sensual 2... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Talbot 3000ml
