Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, May 2007, Score: 91-93

Talbot has produced a continuous stream of excellent wines vintage after vintage. So, it was not asurprise to find the 2006 a pleasure to taste. Superbly pretty with a core of dark plums, blackberries and violets, it finishes fresh and clean with long, velvety tannins. Besides Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Talbot was able to use wonderfully ripe Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc giving the wine additional complexity and depth.

Producer

Château Talbot

A mark of the significant English influence in Bordeaux, Talbot was named after John Talbot, Earlof Shrewsbury, who fought gallantly but unsuccessfully against the French in Castillon in 1453. For many years, it was a twin to Gruaud Larose which also bore the Cordier label. However, since 1992 Jean Cordier exchanged his shares in Gruaud to take complete control of Talbot. It is now run by his daughter Nancy. Talbot has produced a continuous stream of excellent wines vintage after vintage.

Region

St Julien, Red Bordeaux

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
