Chateau Talbot Saint-Julien. 4th Médoc Grand Cru Classé, Château Talbot comprises 110 hectares of a
single vineyard in the heart of the Saint-Julien commune, an outstanding
appellation as it counts no fewer than 11 classified growths.
Ideally situated on the banks of the Gironde estuary on
hilltops of alluvial gravel carried by the Dordogne River from the Massif Central
and from the Pyrenees by the Garonne, Château Talbot’s terroir is exceptional.
The totality of the 110 hectares of the Château Talbot vineyard
surrounds the estate house and stretches north, all the way to the border with
the Pauillac appellation. Plan The totality of the 110 hectares of the Château
Talbot vineyard surrounds the estate house and stretches north, all the way to
the border with the Pauillac appellation. Planted on a terroir of fine Gunzian
gravels with a core of fossil-rich limestone, which form draining hilltops, one
finds a large majority of red vines (105 hectares) and a small acreage of
whites (5 hectares). The impeccable management of the vineyard is one of the most irreproachable in
the Medoc. The wines, supervised by Nancy Bignon-Cordier, with the valuable
advice of enologist Eric Boissenot and consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt, are
consistently rich while remaining extremely elegant. The smooth taste and their silky tannins make it possible to drink them young
as well as after prolonged aging. With time they develop a delicate, complex
aromatic bouquet with tones of cedar and Havana tobacco.
Château Talbot is certified High
Environmental Value Level 3.
