ABOUT THE WINE
Legend has it that Chateau Talbot takes its name from an ancient British soldier, Connetable Talbot. In 1453, Talbot was killed during the battle in the fight at Castillon and the estate was named in his honour. Chateau Talbot remained in the hands of the d'Aux-Lally family until 1917, when the Cordier family bought the property. Recently they modernised the cellar and abandoned old winemaking practices.

TASTING NOTES
The evolved, soft, silky 2008 Talbot is unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage, offering a dark plum/garnet colour, loads of roasted herb, berry, black cherry, plum and Asian spice aromas intermixed with an attractive forest floor-like note. Already drinking well, this medium-bodied Saint-Julien should continue to evolve.

FOOD PAIRING
From such a bold vintage, this wine needs a bold dish. Strong flavours, lamb, blue and aged cheese, cured meat.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Talbot has a reputation for consistency and is one of the most carefully made and reliable of the Saint-Julien Cru Classé clarets.
