About the producer: Château Talbot
Located in St Julien near Château Beychevelle, Château Talbot is one of the largest estates in the Médoc. It takes its name from John Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, who lost the battle of Castillon in 1453 allowing the French to take control of Bordeaux’s vineyards after 340 years of British ownership. Château Talbot is perceived as one of the most reliable wine in St-Julien. Since the 1950s the estate has been owned by the Cordier family and today Nancy Bignon Cordier, her husband Jean-Paul and, their children Philippine, Marguerite and Gustave are in charge of the estate. They have hired famous oenologist Eric Boissenot as a consultant and produce rich wines that can age for a long time. View our selection.
