Tasting Notes:

The 2012 is a supple, inviting wine. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke and licorice appear first, followed by scents of graphite, smoke, violet and sage that add nuance. This expressive, open-knit Saint-Julien has a lot to offer. Above all else, the Talbot is incredibly sensual and inviting. It will be hard to resist young, but also has enough depth to drink well for two decades, perhaps longer.

Undeniably, Talbot is one of the most famous Médoc wines. This fine reputation is no doubt due to a mysterious combination of factors, such as the size of its vineyard, nearly one hundred hectares, and the regularity of its wine. Nearly a century in the same family, the name Talbot is concise and hard-hitting, easy to pronounce in all languages and a part of our history… However, the first thing that makes Talbot popular is the wonderful nature of its wine.

Médoc Grand Cru Classé, Château Talbot comprises 107 hectares of vineyard cultivated in the heart of the Saint-Julien commune, an outstanding appellation, as it counts no fewer than 11 classified growths. Ideally situated on the banks of the estuary of the Gironde on hilltops of alluvial gravel carried by the Dordogne River from the Massif Central and from the Pyrénées by the Garonne, Château Talbot’s terroir is exceptional.
