Marks and reviews
Château Talbot, 4th Cru Classé in Saint-Julien, is one of the Médoc's most emblematic wines. Acquired by Désiré Cordier in 1918, Château Talbot is now run by Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her husband, Jean-Paul Bignon.
Château Talbot 2022 is a Saint-Julien wine made from 94.3 hectares of vines in a single block at the heart of the appellation. These vines, which are on average 42 years old, are ideally located on the banks of the Gironde estuary and rest on the gravelly hillsides of the Médoc.
Winemaking and ageing
Harvested by hand between September 9 and 28, the grapes underwent successive sorting (manual and optical) before vinification in wooden vats. Ageing took place for 15 months in barrels, of which 60% were new.
Château Talbot 2022 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (25%) and Petit Verdot (5%).
