Saint-Julien, Châtaeu Talbot 2015 4. Cru

DKK 549,00 inkl. moms

Saint-Julien, Châtaeu Talbot 2015 4. Cru 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 matière during élevage. Drink: 2022 – 2040.

Score: 88/90 Neal Martin

A refined yet chewy young red with lots of blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors. Full body, ripe tannins and a fresh and clean finish.

Score 92/93 James Suckling

Score 92/93 James Suckling

Notes of black cherries, underbrush, tobacco and smoked herbs all emerge from the 2015 Château Talbot and it’s an old-school, classic, concentrated 2015 that does everything right. With medium-bodied richness, good concentration, and solid overall balance, it’s already approachable, as are most in the vintage, yet will benefit from short-term cellaring and deep for 10-15 years. 2018 – 2033

Score: 91 Jeb Dunnuck

Dark crimson. Lots of sweet fruit but a slight lack of focus. Solid box-ticking wine but without real excitement.
Drink 2024-2040
