Château Talbot

Château Talbot is a Fourth Growth estate in the St.-Julien appellation of Bordeaux. It is one of the largest chateaux in the appellation with nearly 300 acres of vineyards. Since the early 20th century the estate has been owned by the Cordier family, and today it is owned by sisters Lorraine Cordier and Nancy Bignon-Cordier. The blend is generally 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Nearly 32,000 cases are produced annually. Many Bordeaux experts, including Robert M. Parker Jr., believe that Château Talbot deserves to be upgraded to a Third Growth classification. The château also makes a second label and a white wine.
