Description

Very appealing in the glass, this is a seductive, pure, very expressive wine. The nose mingles white-fleshed cherries, lilies and wild roses, underscored by a more exotic hint of pink grapefruit juice. The palate is full-bodied and harmonious with plenty of depth, and a pleasant, appetizing finish. A delightful wine that will make very enjoyable drinking.- Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Médoc Grand Cru Classé, Château Talbot comprises 107 hectares of vineyard cultivated in the heart of the Saint-Julien commune, an outstanding appellation, as it counts no fewer than 11 classified growths.

Ideally situated on the banks of the estuary of the Gironde on hilltops of alluvial gravel carried by the Dordogne River from the Massif Central and from the Pyrénées by the Garonne, Château Talbot’s terroir is exceptional.

HISTORY

On the shore of an ocean of vines among its park’s tall trees, one catches sight of Château Talbot in the distance from the plateau of Saint-Julien-Beychevelle. The estate has a rich history. Its name originates with Connétable Talbot, a famous English warrior, governor of Guyenne, defeated at the battle of Castillon in 1453.

In 1855, at the time of the Médoc and Graves growth classifications ordered by Emperor Napoléon III, Château Talbot was ranked fourth classified growth of Saint-Julien. For several decades it belonged to the Marquis of Aux. In 1917 Désiré Cordier acquired it. His son Georges, then his grandson, Jean, followed him at the head of the estate. Under their guidance, Talbot became one of the most famous growths in the Bordeaux region.

Upon the death of Jean Cordier during the autumn of 1993 his daughters, Lorraine and Nancy, took over the reins of Talbot. Enriched with the still vivid memory of knowledge and experience of past generations, which preceded them, Lorraine and Nancy formed a team that for more than 15 years animated this Grand Cru with all the talent and respect that it merited.

Spring 2011 brought sad news – that of the untimely passing away of Lorraine Cordier. Today, Nancy Bignon Cordier and her husband, Jean-Paul Bignon, pursue the history of Talbot; a long history which has always united with passion the destiny of a family to that of a vineyard.
