It is undeniable that Talbot - one of the most famous vintage wines of the Medoc. Such an excellent reputation it owes mysterious combination of several factors: the pruning his vines (about 100 hectares), the constancy of his guilt (almost a century produced in the same family), named Talbot (short and compelling, easy to pronounce in any language). However, in the first place popularity Talbot brings the superior quality of its wines.
"For many, Talbot embodies the ideal of September Julien buketistogo, very stable and faithful maturation" - emphasize Bettan and Dessie in his Guide to the Great Wines of France.
And indeed it is. Talbot - the champion of longevity, which, nevertheless, does not prevent him, even in his youth to be nice and round, always marked by a very noble soft silky tannin notes.
Talbot, an extrovert by nature, never closes on itself and allows himself a favor to reside in a good mood. This elegant wine with complex notes of Havana and malt, delicate, without the slightest hint of harshness.
