Château Talbot winery takes its name from the heroic English commander Connetable Talbot, who died in 1453 at the Battle of Castillon. The largest and one of the oldest Château of Saint Julien, is ideally located a short distance from the Gironde, where the vineyards are on a fine pebble ground and produce one of the finest red wines of Saint Julien. The Château has belonged to the Cordier family since 1917. Several generations of this family show that they realize the importance of quality. Traditional and modern methods are used side by side. The interaction between man and nature and an age-old knowledge of this excellent terroir, produce a different wine every year, but a wine that is certainly complex and beautifully balanced.
