"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 One of the best Talbots over recent years, and possibly the best since the 1986 and 1982, this sexy juggernaut of a wine struts forth with an opaque plum/ruby/purple colour and terrific notes of crème de cassis, liquorice, roasted herbs, and smoky barbecue. It is a brilliant effort, with full body, wonderful fruit, a savoury, expansive mouthfeel, sensational texture, and a long finish, but no hardness or astringency. This is a fabulous Talbot to drink over the next 20-25 years.
