Saint-Julien Fourth Growth

77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot

The vineyard covers just over 105 hectares, with vines averaging 35 years in age, and production is around 530 barrels or between 600 and 650,000 bottles a year for an average red yield of 4 to 5000 liters per hectare.

Château Talbot also has 5 hectares planted with white Sauvignon for 80% and 20% Semillon. This is one of the oldest Secs wines in the Médoc: Château Caillou Blanc.

James Suckling: 94-95/100
A medium- to full-bodied red with very fine tannins. It’s firm and structured, showing a bright, dark-fruited character. Focused, with a good center-palate and a lingering finish. Really polished.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous: 93-95/100
The 2023 Talbot is another strong wine for this re-emerging estate. Powerful, deep and impressively resonant, the 2023 is striking. Dark-toned fruit, new leather, lavender and dried herbs build over time. There's terrific depth and intensity here, with fine balance to match. This is a superb showing from Talbot and the team led by Estate Director Jean-Michel Laporte. Drink 2030-2053.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate: 92-94/100

Offering up aromas of dark berries, baking chocolate, plums, espresso roast and crushed mint, the 2023 Talbot is medium to full-bodied, deep and fleshy, with a rich but lively core of fruit, powdery tannins and a long, penetrating finish. Harvested over the course of fully four weeks, it's a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot that attained 13% alcohol.
