2006 TALBOT / 大寶

Something about Chateau Talbot

A prestigious Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Château Talbot is one of the essential references of the wines of the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region. The estate oversees a unique vineyard, consisting of a 114-hectare single vineyard. Château Talbot enjoys an exceptional terroir due its Garonne gravel-alluvial soils and its close proximity to the Gironde estuary.

Benefiting from the expertise of Nancy Bignon-Cordier, oenologist Éric Boissenot and consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt, the wines of Château Talbot are among the most famous Médoc vintages that are recognized for their consistent quality vintage after vintage.

As classy, elegant wines, the style of Château Talbot has a generous bouquet that is expressive in its youth and then reveals great depth and complexity over the years. On the palate, these wines decisively display the typicity of the Saint-Julien appellation that is marked with structured, silky tannins. Château Talbot embodies the excellence of Médoc wines in a classic approach, and is far from the clichés of austerity.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

This fruity, soft, somewhat commercial, mid-weight St.-Julien offers sweet black cherry and currant fruit intermixed with subtle herb, spice box, and smoke characteristics. While not particularly concentrated, it is a round, aromatic, soft, sensual 2006 to enjoy over the next 10-13 years.

Tasted at the UGC. Very little on the nose which displays some underlying greenness. Blackberry, wild hedgerow, cut grass and a touch of toffee. The palate is medium-bodied with furry tannins, lacking a little harmony and focus with supple, red-berried finish. Well integrate new oak, I think this will improve a point or two in barrel. Tasted April 2007.

Very perfumed, with violet and currant character. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Juicy young wine. Impressive.

Dark crimson. Tobacco leaf notes on the nose - rather drying tannins on the finish. A little bit pinched. Far from opulent!
