  Château Talbot is a Grand Cru Classé (Fourth Growth, Quatrième Cru) in Saint-Julien in Bordeaux, France. The estate was founded in the 15th century by Connétable John Talbot, English soldier and governor of Guyenne, who was defeated in the 1453 Battle of Castillon. It eventually fell into the hands of the Marquis of Aux, which lasted several decades before acquisition by Désiré Cordier in 1917. It was his son, Georges and his grandson, Jean, who propelled the estate to earn the reputation it achieved as one of the top wines of the Médoc in the later part of the 20th century. Jean Cordier’s daughter, Nancy Bignon Cordier and her husband, Jean-Paul Bignon, currently oversee production.    The vineyard area covers 102 hectares, with the majority devoted to red grape cultivation from vines averaging 42 years old. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant varietal, followed by Merlot and Petit Verdot. The whites (Caillou Blanc) are 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon. In addition to Château Talbot, which represents nearly 60% of its production, the estate also produces Connétable Talbot as their second wine.  Read less

Beychevelle is on the rebound as evidenced by what they have accomplished over recent years. A good example of this chateau, the elegant, finesse-styled 2004 exhibits black cherry and cassis fruit int... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Die Hauptparzelle des Château BEYCHEVELLE erstreckt sich über ein Terroir aus tiefreichendem Gronne-Kiesel – der beste Boden für die Cabernet Sauvignon-Rebe – und profitiert von den stabilen Klimaverhältnissen an den Ufern der Garonne. Heute rückt der Wein mit seinen herausragenden Qualitäten eher in der Nähe eines «deuxième Cru». Es ist unbestreitbar, dass der Wein an Reichtum, Intensität und Struktur aufweist – doch hat der BEYCHEVELLE auch eine Weichheit und Eleganz, die ihn immer zu einem ausgezeichneten Wein verhalf.
