    Goedhuis

    Talbot has produced a continuous stream of excellent wines vintage after vintage and as a result has become synonymous with consistency.A 20% reduction in yield and a higher selection enabled themto make a silky, polished wine. Fresh and bright, the 2007 offers aromatic violet, subtle leafy Cabernet and ripe bramble fruit, all supported by gentle spice. Clean mineral finish.

    Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Talbot has a pleasant, classic nose of singed leather and game, a little muffled compared to its peers. But there is a sense of charm that I like, and it speaks of its appellation origin. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth texture. It lacks depth and grip but is nicely balanced with a cedar-tinged finish that pulls up short, as if to say, that's your lot. Drink now. Tasted February 2017. 87/100. Drink 2017-2027

    This lighter-styled 2007 reveals subtle notes of herbs, black cherries, plums, and currants. It is a dark ruby-hued, elegant, mid-weight wine to consume over the next 7-10 years. Drink: 2010 - 2020

    Very healthy crimson. Light, savoury and a little bit leafy. Sweet palate but very round, light tannins. Not desperately refreshing but an easy drink with some sap. Pretty green finish. Drink 2011-17.

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

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.
