Chateau Talbot is one of the largest estates in the Médoc, with 102 hectares of vine near Beychevelle. It is perceived as one of the most reliable wine in St-Julien. Since the 1950s the estate has been owned by the Cordier family, who also produce a white wine ‘Le Caillou Blanc de Talbot’, very unusual for the area.
“Lovely deep damson colour with violet edging that suggests a healthy pH. Great balance of fruit and acidity, this is one of the fresher wines of the appellation. The fruit is cleanly extracted, fresh and well paced, with a lovely layer of complexity driven by smoke-edged mineral notes. Aged in 50% new oak.” – 94 pts Jane Anson, Decanter
