The 2015 Talbot is endowed with serious power and density. Dark plum, lavender, new leather, spice and grilled herbs run through this decidedly potent Saint-Julien.

Château Talbot, a 4th Classified Growth from Saint-Julien, is one of the Médoc's iconic references. Acquired by Désiré Cordier in 1918, Château Talbot is now run by Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her husband, Jean-Paul Bignon.

Château Talbot's vineyard is a real gem, situated in the heart of the Saint-Julien appellation, it spreads over a 110-hectare single block vineyard, of which 102.5 hectares are dedicated to the estates firts wine, These vines which are 51 years old on average, are idyllically situated on the banks of the Gironde estuary and rest on the alluvial gravel Médoc slopes.

The grapes are harvested by hand and then sorted manually and optically, before being vinified in wooden vats. The wine is aged for 15 months in barrels, 50% of which are new.

Hearty meat dishes and red meat with roasted herbs and vegetables.

James Suckling - 94 points. Wine Enthusiast - 94 points Wine Spectator - 92 points
