Talbot’s vines grow in an ideal location bordering the estuary, on some of the region’s most highly prized gravelly rises which alone produce great wines. Talbot is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc, and its reputation has been unfailingly fine through the years. That is because the château has been in the hands of experienced managers, and always shown itself to be worthy of its inclusion in the 1855 classification.
Owners of Talbot since the early 20th century, the Cordier family have perpetuated the commitment to quality of their predecessors. At Talbot, wine is very much past, present, and future. Therefore, tradition and technical innovations both count a great deal.
Thanks to an alliance between man and nature, and generations of experience, this outstanding terroir produces wines that may vary depending on the vintage, but is always well-balanced and complex. Five hectares are given over to the production of a dry white wine, Caillou Blanc, which is crisp and well-balanced. It likewise reflects its noble terroir.
