2016 Château Talbot, 4ème Cru St Julien
2016 Bordeaux En Primeur
68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot
The 2016 Talbot has a conservative bouquet with slightly leafy black fruit, a subtle earthiness that percolates through with time. At first, the aromatics seem standoffish, but you gradually warm to its charms. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp and tensile tannin. There is an edginess to this Talbot, and it does not quite possess the harmony and charm of other Saint Julien 2016s. But, there is personality here-a bit curmudgeonly and yet you keep going back to take another sip. One to watch. Drink 2022 - 2045. Scores: 90/92 - Neal Martin
A full-bodied red that stays in check with a firm and lightly chewy tannin backbone. Full body and an intense finish. Shows excellent potential. Scores: 93/94 - James Suckling
Very dark and shiny. Not that intense but very well mannered. Sweet, almost thick, start. Very flattering. If I had to choose one wine to represent the vintage in typical style I might well choose this one - though the hint of heat on the end is a little worrying. Should be rewarding in the end. Great harmony. Drink 2025-45. Scores: 17 - Jancis Robinson
