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.
This is always a very popular Château, delivering a consistently high level every year. This vintage is another classic Talbot; a light, fresh and floral bouquet with blackberry fruit, a little clove and tobacco. The ripe black fruits are supported by finely polished tannins, and there is a little savoury edge on the finish.
Delicious with beef ribs with mushrooms, bacon and potatoes.
