  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

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

Dark plum and blueberry compote notes lead the way, followed by dark cocoa and tobacco. A fleshy feel runs throughout, with a stony edge adding length and balance on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2021.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Talbot 09 displays a touch of gaminess on the nose of this wine that is well defined: blackberry graphite and undergrowth. It is feral at first but calms down in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a delicate understated graphite entry. I would have liked more weight more density in the context of the growing season although it retains fine length. Tasted January 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Initially generous, the wine then becomes much more solid and dense. The structure is all there along with the ripest fruit. It is delicious and darkly tannic at the same time. R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Talbot 1500ml
