Decanter: Classic, robust and meaty Talbot fruit with slightly gamey spice, but more polish and lift in 2015. Always open in style but will last well. 91 Points

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator - "This distinctive wine puts a slightly chewy and austere note of warm stone alongside the vintage's more typical lush tannins, giving this interesting contrast. The core sports solid currant and blackberry fruit, with ample length. Barrel Sample: 90-93 points"
Ratings
The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Talbot has a very typical nose for this Saint Julien estate: unapologetically classic in style, reserved even, with very subtle blackberry and briary scents tinged with pencil shavings. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate weight in the mouth, but it feels very linear and conservative towards the finish. Talbot rarely shows well out of barrel and can improve in bottle, so I will be a little more optimistic in my score and hope that it gains matière during élevage. Barrel Sample: 88-90 points"
Awards
Wine Enthusiast - "This wine has brooding tannins, concentrated berry flavors and a fine shot of acidity. A light edge of red berry flavors gives lift to the dusty tannins. Already the fine balance of the wine is showing through. Barrel Sample: 92-94 points"
Production Notes
Red wine from Talbot is typically a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Merlot (26%), Cabernet Franc (3%), and Petit Verdot (5%) - the vinification includes 18 months maturation in small oak barriques (50% new).
Other Notes
This imposing estate owes its name to Connetable Talbot, the English general and governor of the province of Guyenne who was defeated at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453. Talbot's vines grow in an ideal location bordering an estuary, on some of the region's most highly prized gravel rises which alone produce great wine. Talbot is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc, and its reputation has been in the hands of experienced managers, and always shown itself to be worthy of its inclusion in the 1855 classification. Owners of Talbot since the early 20th century, the Cordier family have perpetuation the commitment to quality of their predecessors. At Talbot, wine is very much past, present, and future. Therefore, tradition and technical innovations both count a great deal.
