Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

Bright ruby-red. Slightly rustic aromas of musky black raspberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, leather and game. Sweet, glossy and pliant, with lovely intensity and lift to the flavors of dark cherry, cherry pit and spices. Hints at the horsey quality typical of this chateau but boasts terrific enveloping fruit and noteworthy sweetness. Finishes with broad, plush tannins and excellent length. One of the top few Talbot vintages of the last 25 years.

Wine Advocate | 91

Extremely sexy, soft, supple and opulent, with notes of cedar, herbs, incense and black currant fruit, this is a full-bodied, generously endowed but silky Talbot to drink now and over the next 20+ years. By any standard of measurement, this is irresistible.

Wine Spectator | 91

Dark plum and blueberry compote notes lead the way, followed by dark cocoa and tobacco. A fleshy feel runs throughout, with a stony edge adding length and balance on the finish.

About This Producer


Located in Saint-Julien, Chateau Talbot was classified as a Forth Growth chateau in the 1855 classification. The estate's history traces to Constable Talbot, who was an English warrior, defeated in France at the battle of Castillon in 1453. The Cordier family bought the estate in 1917 and continues operations today. The Cordiers believe in quality wine production with deepest respect for the land, and the results of their efforts are continually met with accolades from critics and wine enthusiasts worldwide. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Merlot (26%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (3%), which in general mirrors the wine's blend. Talbot wines are consistently firm in structure with well-rounded tannins, and are highly concentrated, giving them excellent aging potential. Chateau Talbot also makes a dry white, Caillou Blanc de Talbot, produced from 80% Sauvignon and 20% Semillon, as well as a second label red, Connetable de Talbot.
