Notes
The 2020 Talbot has a deep garnet-purple color. It sings of black cherries, fresh red and black plums, and blackcurrant preserves, followed by hints of spice cake, wild thyme, and cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate is chewy and refreshing, with just enough bright fruit and a lifted finish.

Château Talbot

Château Talbot

Talbot’s history is rather more interesting than some of its wines... Named after the Earl of Shrewsbury, John Talbot who suffered defeat and death at the hands of the French which resulted in the Bordeaux vineyards being repatriated after 340 years of British rule.

Today, this 4th growth St Julien estate produces solid and well priced wines, but is rarely spectacular. Those who have tasted the 1982 and 1986 vintages (under Cordier control) will testify to their excellence; sadly these feats haven’t been repeated recently.
