2019 Château Talbot, St.-Julien

Week three of the 2019 en primeur campaign starts with an English favourite, Châteaux Talbot, released this morning with excellent scores. With Talbot offered at 24% below the 2018 release price, the 2019 is the lowest priced Talbot on the market.

Along with Senejac and Domaine Saint Andrieu in Provence, Talbot is owned by Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her family.  Often described with terms like 'faithful' and 'reliable', Talbot now has a new injection of dynamism from the appointment last years of Jean-Michel Laporte. 

After training with Jean-Claude Berrouet at JP Moueix, Laporte spent almost 14 years at La Conseillante and so suggests serious intent to improve quality here even further.  James Suckling awards the 2019 94-95 points, finding depth, structure and lots of "blue fruit, blackberries and dark chocolate".

 

Offered En Primeur, landing Spring 2022.
