A wine with Vivino scores 4.4 or higher for all of its Vintage years, the prestigious Château Talbot 3rd Grand Crus Classé Saint Julien hails from one of the largest wineries in Saint Julien, France. One of the most famous wines of Médoc from over 102.5 hectares of vineyards, planted in Médoc gravel soils, this wine is a true testament to its quality and longevity.
In 1855, Emperor Napoleon III ordered growth classifications for wines in the region. Château Talbot was promoted as a fourth classified growth of Saint-Julien. For several decades it was owned by the Marquis of Aux and was acquired by Désiré Cordier in 1918. Today, two generations later, Nancy Bignon Cordier, her husband Jean-Paul, their children Philippine, Marguerite and Gustave Bignon continue Talbot’s legacy; a rich and exciting history that united their family’s passion for wine and their vineyard.
The Château Talbot 3rd Grand Crus Classé Saint Julien is a wine that is quite food-friendly and can be enjoyed and paired with a variety of recipes and dishes. Enjoy this wine at cellar temperature (approcimately 15.5 degrees Celsius) and with classic meat dishes using veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, stewed and grilled.
