4th Cru Classé in 1855. Legend relates that the name of this imposing estate originates with Connétable Talbot, a famous English warrior, defeated at the battle of Castillonin 1453.
Talbot is one of the Medoc’s oldest estates, its glory never tainted. Through the years it has been fortunate enough to remain in good hands. The owners are Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her family. They are the fourth generation of Cordiers to manage this Saint-Julien fourth classified growth.
Grape varieties: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
Tasting: Dense ruby and purple color. In the nose, there is a hint of tapenade, black cherries and soil undertone in a seductive, lush style. We can find supple, elegant and well-defined palate. Tannins well-judged, ripe and velvety, showing through with good acidity.
Companion: Lamb, beef and duck in all ways. Epoisse or Pont-l’Évêque for the cheese.
