ABOUT THE WINE
Legend has it that Chateau Talbot takes its name from a British soldier, Connetable Talbot, who was killed in a battle at Castillon in 1453; the estate was named in his honour. Since 1917, Talbot has been owned by the Cordier family. As with all notable chateaux, the family has invested heavily in Talbot to ensure that it achieves the quality levels of which it is capable. With 102 hectares of vineyards, Talbot is one of the largest estates in the Medoc; wines see 50-60% new oak, for around 15 months.

TASTING NOTES
One of the top examples of Talbot over the last decades, but this wine is all about opulence and fruit intensity and less so about complexity for now. Undoubtedly it will develop further to reveal much more. A fine, muscular wine from an exceptional year. This is one to keep even further. 

FOOD PAIRING
Strong flavours; lamb, beef stews, cured meat.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A fabulous Talbot to drink over the next 20-25 years.
