Talbot 2015

We did not get a chance to taste the 2015 Talbot after our write-upsome years ago , and rely on the expert tasting as follows:

The 2015 Talbot shows much better now than just a year ago. Here it has a much more intense bouquet than Gruaud Larose and Lagrange. Upfront blackberry and bilberry scents, cedar and subtle mint aromas lend complexity with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin on the entry, a fine bead of acidity with layers of graphite-infused black fruit. I love the precision of the finish here, and the persistence is superb. Impressive. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. RP93, Neal Martin,, July 2019. Edited.

A big, rich wine for St. Julien with plenty of power and concentration, which enables it to carry plenty of spicy and toasty oak. The tannins need some time to soften, but the elegant finish says that from 2020 this should impress. 94 James Suckling,, February 2018. Edited.
