2020 Château Talbot is released for sale En Primeur this morning.
Talbot (£478 per dozen) has been undergoing a renaissance under Jean-Michel Laporte (previously at La Conseillante) and Jane Anson describes the 2020 as "a great Talbot, a real success for the château (95 points)". The other major critics are in general agreement, notable in that Talbot is often not the easiest wine to taste from cask and which often improves in bottle. Galloni describes it as "hugely promising (95 points)." We found it elegant and beautifully balanced between charming aromatic fruit aromas and a darker, more intense palate, perfectly framed by judicious use of oak.
