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 best Talbots over recent years, this seductive wine struts forth with a deep purple colour and terrific notes of crème de cassis, liquorice, roasted herbs and smoky barbecue. It is a brilliant effort, with full body, wonderful fruit, a savoury, expansive mouthfeel, sensational texture and a long finish, but no detectable hardness or astringency.

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

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