Grand Vin of the prestigious Grand Cru Classe Chateau Talbott, the Chateau Talbot 2018 perfectly embodies the classic Saint-Julien style.
An essential reference from the Left Bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Talbot is at the head of one of the largest vineyards in the Medoc with 102.5 hectares of vineyards planted in Medoc gravel soils.
The Chateau Talbot 2018 is made from a selection of vines aged 50 years on average. The Chateau Talbot 2018 blend includes 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Talbot is just a little reduced to begin, opening out to reveal notions of warm red and black currants, baked plums and mulberries with touches of sautéed herbs, tilled soil, fallen leaves and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, it has commendably ripe, fine-grained tannins and restrained, earthy layers on offer in the mouth with an herbal lift on the finish.
