  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

I've had the luck to taste several Bordeaux from this vintage in recent years. I think this one had the most life. The dark fruits were still very present, with purple flower aromas, and even a bit of a meaty presence. The finish fell a bit short, letting us know it had crested the hill and was on its way down. Still, it was a pleasure to drink.

Deep Red, Herbaceous nose, jammy on the palate, lot of fruit finesse for a wine this age. Medium soft tannins, long finish that lingers in the mouth for a long time.

Another solid bordeaux that I really like, also introduced to me by Miss Margaux, although I drink it less than Beychevelle or others.
