Legend has it that the name of this imposing estate of Saint-Julien is attached to that of Connétable Talbot, a famous English man of war, defeated at the Battle of Castillon in 1453. Property within the Cordier estates, the Château Talbot has always been considered the twin brother of the Château Gruaud Larose. Located to the north of the latter, Talbot rubs shoulders with the vines of Léoville Poyferré. Its sweeping contiguous vineyard lies on gravel with a calcareous subsoil. Blend: 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.
The color is dark with purple reflections. It already shows the depth of this vintage.
The nose very refined with a floral and red fruit side as well as a subtle woody note treated with precision.
On the palate, it is dense, silky and fleshy, of a beautiful elegance with very refined, fine tannins. A great length with black fruits on the finish.
