THE TERROIR

The terroir

The 107 hectares of the Château Talbot vineyard surround the estate house and stretch north, all the way to the border with the Pauillac appellation. Planted on a terroir of fine Günzian gravel on a core of fossil-rich limestone, which form draining hilltops, one encounters a large majority of red vines (102 hectares) and a small acreage of whites (5 hectares).

Impeccable, the vineyard’s management is one of the Médoc‘s best. The wines, followed up by Nancy Bignon-Cordier, with the valuable advice of enologist Jacques Boissenot and consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt, are consistently rich while remaining extremely elegant. Their open character and well-rounded tannins make it possible to drink them young as well as after prolonged aging. With time they develop a delicate, complex aromatic bouquet with tones of cedar and Havana.
