Château Talbot 2017 – Saint-Julien, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, racy and offers a fine grain. It reveals notes of ripe raspberry, ripe red berries and small notes of crunchy/fresh blackberry associated with fine touches of violet, lilac as well as fine hints of racy minerality/gravels, discreet hints of spices and a subtle hint of nutmeg. The palate is fruity, fresh, mineral, well-balanced and offers a juicy/acidulous frame, a good definition, gourmandize, fat as well as a small deepness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cherry, raspberry, small notes of juicy/ripe cassis associated with fine touches of violet, lilac as well as discreet hints of racy minerality/gravels, tonka bean and nutmeg. Tannins are well-built and elegant.
