Château Talbot, Saint-Julien 2016 IN BOND

Chateau Talbot 2016 is “a jewel of a wine” from this perennially good value Saint-Julien Fourth Growth. This is a very fine Talbot - it has received excellent reviews and is predicted to age and appreciate well over the coming decades. “The 2016 Talbot is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Black cherry, plum, gravel, smoke, lavender and mint all flesh out in this decidedly imposing, vertical Saint-Julien. Concentrated and forbiddingly tannic at this stage, the 2016 is going to need at least a few years to start coming into its own. It should age gracefully for decades.” 92-95, Antonio Galloni  "A full-bodied red that stays in check with a firm and lightly chewy tannin backbone. Full body and an intense finish. Shows excellent potential." 93-94 Points, James Suckling "The 2016 Talbot has a conservative bouquet with slightly leafy black fruit, a subtle earthiness that percolates through with time. At first, the aromatics seem standoffish, but you gradually warm to its charms. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp and tensile tannin. There is an edginess to this Talbot, and it does not quite possess the harmony and charm of other Saint Julien 2016s. But, there is personality here—a bit curmudgeonly and yet you keep going back to take another sip. One to watch." 90-92 Points, Neal Martin/The Wine Advocate
