Chateau Talbot 2006

A dense and powerful red wine from Saint-Julien

A 4ème Cru Classé en 1855, Château Talbot was named after Constable Talbot, the famous British warrior who lost the battle of Castillon in 1453. Produced in the Saint-Julien appellation, the estate benefits from a vineyard of 99 hectares. Aged 54 years, on average, the vines are planted on soils composed of Médoc gravel. The aging of the wine is done in barrels (of which 50% are new barrels). The blend of the 2006 vintage is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

The Château Talbot 2006 displays an intense garnet red color. The nose gives off powerful aromas of cedar and toast. Full-bodied on the palate, the wine shows density, power and extremely lenght. The wine also reveals tannins of great flexibility, which are soft and succulent. A sublime and complex wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Talbot already shows more maturity in the glass, though nothing to get too concerned about. The nose is very traditional with cedar and tobacco scents dominating the fruit, a touch of the old stately home. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin, moderate weight in the mouth, but with a rather austere finish. It has character, if not quite the class of its peers this vintage. Tasted January 2016.
