Château Talbot is a Saint-Julien appellation wine. This Bordeaux red wine is well known in the Médoc. The name Château Talbot refers to John Talbot, an English constable. The estate has belonged to the Cordier family since 1918. At that time, Désiré Cordier bought Château Talbot from the Marquis d'Aux de Lescout family. Georges Cordier, his son, took over the running of the estate. He decided to plant a white grape variety. Today, Nancy Bignon-Cordier and Jean-Paul Bignon run Château Talbot. This fourth Saint-Julien Grand Cru Classé boasts a 110-hectare single vineyard.
