CHATEAU TALBOT - SAINT JULIEN - 2016

Legend relates that the name of this imposing estate originates with Connétable Talbot, a famous English warrior, governor of Guyenne, defeated at the battle of Castillon in 1453. Chateau Talbot is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc. For several decades, it belonged to the Marquis of Aux. In 1917 Désiré Cordier acquired it. His son Georges, then his grandson, Jean, followed him at the head of the estate. Under their guidance, Talbot became one of the most famous growths in the Bordeaux region. The Bignon-Cordier family is now at the head of this beautiful estate. It is the fifth generation of Cordiers to manage this Saint-Julien 4th Classified Growth.

Tasting Notes
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 matiere during elevage.
