  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 was a strong performance (better than my original notes suggested) by the 2000 Talbot. Close to full maturity, it exhibits a dense ruby/plum/purple color in addition to a subtle herbaceousness intermixed with smoked meats, black currants, licorice, cedar, and foresty notes. Rich and full-bodied with light tannins, and a slightly richer, more savory, broader, deeper style than I remember, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

A dependable and popular 4th Growth, Chateau Talbot relies on 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Merlot, with the balance divided between Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Vines are kept at an average of 35 years of age. Grapes are sorted twice - in the vineyard and then on a table in the cellar - and fermented in either wood vats or stainless tanks. Connetable, the 'second' wine of the chateau, is the product of younger vines and is matured in one-fifth new oak. The 2000 Connetable offers a ripe, warm aroma with subtle and enticing hints of development (leather and tobacco) together with a ripe, plump palate backed by ripe acidity. The aftertaste is already expressive with an inky note that adds interest. Drink now or cellar to 2012-2014. Delicious value in an excellent year.
