Thisimposing estate gets its name from Constable Talbot, the English general and governor of the province of Guyenne who was defeated at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453.
Talbot’s vines grow in an ideal location bordering the estuary, on some of the region’s most highly prized gravelly terroir where are produced the greatest wines.
Talbot is one of the eldest estates in the Médoc, and its reputation has been unfailingly fine through the years.
This is due to the fact that the Château has always been in the hands of experienced managers proving that its 1855 classification was well deserved.
Owners of Talbot since the early 20thcentury, the Cordier family have perpetuated the commitment to quality of their predecessors. At Talbot, wine is very much past, present, and future. Therefore, tradition and technical innovations both count a great deal.
Thanks to an alliance between man and nature, and generations of experience, this outstanding terroir produces wines that may vary depending on the vintage, but that is always well-balanced and complex. Five hectares are given over to the production of a dry white wine, Caillou Blanc, which is bright and well-balanced. We fin in this wine all the nobility of its terroir.
