  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

Shoe polish and leather dominate the tight and inexpressive nose. While this is a bit easy going, smooth, and moderately rich in the mouth it lacks some detail early on the palate, though it does gain a little olive accent to the berry fruit on the backend, it remains mostly details and a bit anonymous with a bit of a coffee cream finish. texturally attractive for those looking for supple, plush wines. 87pts

Candied fruit on the nose with a medicinal edge, some licorice and smoke here, almost grilled meats – soft and flannelly in the mouth, tannins are a bit dry, feels a bit extracted, nice fruit but the tannins are a bit intrusive, nice fruit paired with plenty of nutty oak on the finish (87-88)

Dark colored wine. Black fruit - smooth. Well-integrated tannins. A bit uncomplex overall, but I like the spice on the finish.

A red with a solid core of blueberry and currant aromas, with spices too. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a balanced finish. Very pretty.
