- 2017 Chateau TalbotSaint-Julien4ième Grand Cru Classé 0.75l RedPrimeur€52.50 €43.39Deep crimson colour and beautifully fragrant in the nose, Talbot is more approchable than usual. There is good intensity and spice, with fragrant violets and cassis. This is not a blockbuster, just very well made and elegant. A classic Talbot and a very good St. Julien with lots of charm inspite of the firm tannic structure. Jean-Michel Laporte, previously wine director at our neigbour, La Conseillante, has just become director at Talbot so we look forward to working with him in the future and appreciating his wines.
- 2016 Chateau TalbotSaint-Julien4ième Grand Cru Classé 0.75l Red€60.20 €49.75One of the most popular wines in Bordeaux, Talbot always has dark, very structured fruit and lots of tannin. This year there is the same intensity but more perfume and expression then round, black fruit flavours, nice tangy acidity, lively and medium weight on the palate and an elegant finish. This style suits Talbot well. Drink 2022-2040
