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.
Aged for 16 months in 60% new oak, this is very refined and stands its ground in the company of its more illustrious peers. The bouquet is rich and overt, full of cassis notes and a whiff of pencil shavings. The palate is rich and moreish, with mulberry fruits, leafy in character and notes of cigar tobacco. The tannin structure is highly impressive. This is a top Talbot.
Delicious with beef ribs with mushrooms, bacon and potatoes.
