    Talbot’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by an attractive, spicy, earthy St.-Julien displaying hints of tapenade, black cherries and soil undertones in a forward, lush, round, seductive style. This excellent, medium-bodied 2011 should provide delicious drinking for 10-15 years. Talbot appears to have succeeded admirably in this vintage.

  • 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.
