“As a simple wine grower who is passionately attached to his vines, it pleases me to convey the efforts undergone to obtain these essentially natural and famous wines, whose perfection and health benefits are a subject of legitimate pride to all of us. It is a well-known fact: to be and to remain the owner of a well-respected vineyard, one must be endowed with a real aristocracy that identifies itself with the vineyard and the wine. must be sacrificed for this, beginning with interests (…). In order to be a grand cru owner, you must in some way be in love with it...". Désiré Cordier (1861 – 1940)
In honor of the 100th anniversary of Cordier family’s acquisition of Château Talbot, we are exceptionally offering you access to old vintages of this emblematic cru from the Saint-Julien appellation, in very limited quantities only.
The year 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the acquisition of Château Talbot by Désiré Cordier. To celebrate this very special occasion, the Château Talbot 2018 comes housed in a collector's edition bottle, featuring a unique silkscreen print chosen by Nancy Bignon-Cordier. The label comes adorned with the pillars of the château's grand chai, representing both the roots of the vine stocks and the trees rooted in the estate’s cherished terroir.
