2020 Château Talbot, Cru Classé St-Julien

The 2020 Talbot is a beautiful St-Julien, that balances ripeness of fruit, silkiness of tannins, and a finely judged mouthfeel. This is a new level for this estate, which is clearly on the up. Secure it at this price, while you have the chance.

TASTING NOTES

A tight, focused young red with blackcurrant, lead-pencil and chocolate character. It’s full-bodied and tense with a long, flavorful finish.
