Bordeaux 2019: Château Talbot
15 June 2020

Chateau Talbot has always had a reputation for producing good, honest St Julien. Since the arrival of our friend, Jean-Michel Laporte (formally of La Conseillante), there appears to be more polish and ambition in the wines. We know that this terroir is capable of great things; remember the heydays of the 1980s. The 2019 is a concentrated, powerful effort. There’s a real classicism to the gravelly dark fruit core, but there’s also a veneer of plush fruit and a wonderful freshness that gives this zip and energy. Gone are any rustic tannins of yesteryear – this is all very smooth and refined, finishing with pure cassis, blueberries and notes of mocha. At £210 per six, this is the cheapest case of Talbot on the market today (24% less than last year’s release), and we’d argue it’s also one of the smartest.
