Black Plum, Blackcurrant and Cedar
Chateau Talbot is a classic claret much loved by us Brits and rightly so. The 2001 vintage is a wine with real charm. Deep purple in colour, it has enjoyable notes of smoked herbs, black liquorice, cedar and tobacco with ripe black plum and blackcurrant flavours. The tannins are smooth and soft allowing this wine to give pleasure now but will continue to develop with further time in the bottle. Medium-bodied with good depth and a lingering persistent finish. Very satisfying and a wonderful St Julian wine
Awarded 17/20 by Jancis Robinson and 89/100 by Robert Parker.

Food and Wine Pairing
A roast lamb with rosemary is always a winner. Add a side of gratin dauphinoise and you are in food and wine heaven! Chateau Talbot is also an excellent choice to go with steak, turkey, and game such as venison, duck and pheasant. Having finished your meal, why not continue by pairing this wine with a hard cheese such as aged cheddar or gouda.
