  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

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)

Mid crimson. Quite a bit of evolution on the nose. Fills out every corner of the palate. Relatively light bodied but well designed and with a little bit of lift and lots of interest. Really useful for early drinking. Very neat finish. 17/20 Jancis Robinson. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Talbot 750ml

Dark color of average intensity. Fruity nose of ripe type wine shows smoothness on the palate more evoking merlot than cabernet sauvignon. Medium length. Will be delicious while young. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com
