Château Talbot is one of the United Kingdom's wine estate best known to the British public, which is not surprising given that it takes its name from John Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, who in 1453 suffered the ignominy of losing the battle and allowed Bordeaux and its vineyards to fall back under French control after belonging to the British Crown for over 340 years.

  • - The wine of Château Talbot

Talbot's red wine is generally a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Merlot (26%), Cabernet Franc (3%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The vinification includes 18 months of maturation in small oak barrels (50%). (New).

Talbot is renowned for its uniformity and is one of the finest and most reliable clarets in the Cru Classé de St Julien. The best examples are richly aromatic with a bouquet of blackcurrant fruit perfumed with cedar wood and vanilla, and a mouth full of ripe, well-defined black fruits and finely integrated tannins. It is classified as a 4ème Cru Classé on the AOC Saint Julien in the 1855 Bordeaux wine classification.

 

  • - The estate

During the last century, it belonged to the Cordier family and the red wine of the property has long been renowned for its reliability. It is one of the largest estates in the Médoc and its unique 102-hectare vineyard is located inland from the Gironde and west of the hamlet of St-Julien-Beychevelle. Georges Cordier, who owned the property in the mid-20th century, was a great lover of white wine and, determined to produce his own, he took the very unusual decision to plant 5 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon in his vineyard. The first white wine harvest took place in 1945 (Le Caillou Blanc de Ch Talbot). The aim is to make wine in a Burgundian style, aged in oak barrels, with 80% Sauvignon Blanc giving liveliness and acidity, while the 20% Semillon impregnates the wine with its weight, acidity and ageing potential.
