Château Talbot

This Château has always had a very strong following amongst our customers here in the North of England - no doubt due to its continued policy of offering good Claret at a competitive price to its peers. A very good wine that will age well.

Tasting Notes

A very rich and opulent wine, the result of a larger proportion of Merlot in the blend. Blackcurrants and morello cherries give a really opulent feel to the wine, the acidity seems relatively low which enhances the moreish mouth feel. This wine will no doubt be very popular.

Food Matches

Delicious with beef ribs with mushrooms, bacon and potatoes.

Vinification

To produce the red wine of Château Talbot, the wine is vinified in a combination of temperature controlled, large, truncated, wood vats and stainless steel tanks. The stainless steel tanks are used only for the young vines. The wine of Château Talbot is then aged in 50% new, French oak barrels for an average of 14-16 months. On average, the production of the Grand Vin is close to 25,000 cases per year of Château Talbot.
