"Château Talbot takes its name from John Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, who in 1453 suffered the ignominy of losing the battle — and with it his life — which allowed Bordeaux and its vineyards to slip back into French control after belonging to the British Crown for over 340 years.

"Château Talbot takes its name from John Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, who in 1453 suffered the ignominy of losing the battle — and with it his life — which allowed Bordeaux and its vineyards to slip back into French control after belonging to the British Crown for over 340 years.

"In the last century it has been owned by the Cordier family, and the red wine of the estate has long enjoyed a reputation for solid dependability. It is one of the largest estates in the Médoc; its 102-hectare single vineyard is situated inland from the Gironde River and west of the hamlet of St-Julien-Beychevelle.

"Talbot has a reputation for consistency and is one of the most carefully-made and reliable of the St-Julien Cru Classé clarets. The best examples are richly aromatic with a bouquet of cedarwood and vanilla-scented cassis fruits and with a palate packed with well-delineated, ripe, black fruits and finely-integrated tannins. It is classified as a 4ème Cru Classé."

— Berry Bros. & Rudd

94 This is the most impressive Talbot since the 1982 and 1986. It reveals an opaque plum/garnet/purple colour as well as knock-out aromas of black fruits, cedar, incense, liquorice, and a Provencal garrigue-like character. Substantial, sexy, and seductive, it is almost slutty in its exuberance and ostentatiousness. It was a thrill to drink this loaded St-Julien. It should offer irresistible drinking over the next 20-25 years.

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 flavours of dark cherry, cherry pit, and spices. Hints at the horsey quality typical of this château 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.
