A charming and dense 4th Classified Growth from Saint-Julien

The estate

Château Talbot, a 4th Classified Growth from Saint-Julien, is one of the Médoc's iconic references. Acquired by Désiré Cordier in 1918, Château Talbot is now run by Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her husband, Jean-Paul Bignon.

The vineyard

Château Talbot’s vineyard is a real gem, situated in the heart of the Saint-Julien appellation, it spreads over a 110-hectare single block vineyard, of which 102.5 hectares are dedicated to the estate’s First Wine. These vines, which are 51 years old on average, are idyllically situated on the banks of the Gironde estuary and rest on the alluvial gravel Médoc hills.

The vinification and ageing

Harvested by hand, the grapes are then sorted (manually and optically) before being vinified in wooden tanks. The wine is aged for 15 months in barrels, 50% of which are new.

The blend

This Château Talbot 2016 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (39%) and Petit Verdot (6%).

Château Talbot 2016: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The colour is dark and deep.

Nose

The nose gradually reveals floral, fruity (blackberry, fig) and balsamic fragrances.

Palate

The palate is alluring and opens with a precise and refreshing attack. The tannic structure is refined with beautifully aged tannins. The wine is sophisticated, showcasing a caressing tannic feel, without lacking character. The finish is flavoursome. A well-balanced whole.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Talbot is medium garnet-purple colored and opens with pretty floral notes of roses and lavender with a core of cassis, blackberry preserves and kirsch plus wafts of cigar box and spearmint. Medium-bodied with a lovely intensity of black and red fruit flavors, it has a ripe, grainy texture and compelling freshness, finishing savory.
