Chateau Talbot 2015

A Saint-Julien red wine with a seductive finesse and aromatic expression

The estate

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

The vineyard

Chateau 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 estate’s First 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 Medoc hills.

The vinification and aging

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.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (66%)

Merlot (31%)

Petit verdot (3%)

Nose

The nose combines floral and fruity fragrances (red fruits) with woody notes due to the aging process.

Palate

Silky, fleshy and elegant, the palate seduces with its fine tannins and exceptional length. The finish is persistent and intensely fruity.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Scented of crushed black raspberries, black cherries and currants with touches of herbs, garrigue and aniseed, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Talbot is medium-bodied and taut with firm, chewy tannins and an earthy finish.
