The vineyard is located in the communal appellation of Saint-Julien in the Médoc. It bears the name of its former owner, General John Talbot (1384-1453). This last commander of the English province of Aquitaine fell against the French at the Battle of Castillon in 1453. Since 1918, the estate has been owned by the Cordier family (but no longer has any connection to the Cordier group). In the Bordeaux classification of 1855, the estate was ranked fourth (Quatrième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover a total of 107 hectares of vines. Of these, 102 hectares are planted with the red wine varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (two thirds), Merlot (26%), Petit Verdot (5%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). The remaining five hectares are planted with the white varieties Sauvignon Blanc (84%) and Sémillon (16%). The red wine, which can be stored for decades, is aged for 15 to 18 months in barriques, 60% of which are new. The second wine is called "Connétable Talbot". The unclassified white wine is called "Caillou Blanc". It is marketed as "one of the oldest Médoc white wines".
