  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Blackberry, lightly toasted oak and cedar on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long silky finish. Needs time to open.

    This wine has turned out to be more impressive from bottle than it was in cask. It is a charming, intensely-scented wine with a tell-tale olive, earth, grilled beef, and black currant-scented bouquet soaring from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, and round, luscious, richly fruity flavors, this is a meaty, fleshy, delicious Talbot that can be drunk now.

    Very dark crimson. Vigorous impact, well balanced with a suitably dry finish. Big and bold and fruity. So much fruit that you have to dig to find the (considerable) tannin.

    Classic Bordeaux flavors. Dark berry fruit intermixed with flavors of olive, chalk, leather and loamy earth. Great complexity and nicely balanced. Fine grained tannins are well integrated. Medium-bodied with good (not great) length to the finish.

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.
