Château Talbot  2016 – Saint-Julien – Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, slight and fruity. It reveals slight notes of fresh blackberry, blackberry and strawberry associated with slight notes of racy minerality (terroir), chocolate truffle as well as slight toasted hints/cardamom and a discreet/imperceptible hint of cornflower. The palate is fruity, nicely juicy, well-balanced, marked by red fruits and offers gourmandise, a beautiful freshness, a slight tension as well as a racy minerality. It’s slightly fleshy on the mid-palate. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy blackberry, fresh strawberry and fresh raspberry associated with slight notes of redcurrant/cassis, toasted oak/chocolate as well as hints of caramelized oak and a slight hint of almost salin minerality on the finish. Tannins are fine and polished. Good length. A success!
