The robe is silky with an average intensity and a beautiful cherry red colour. The nose is very expressive and concentrated, slightly sweet and woody, with a mixture of red fruit aromas, raspberry, and morello cherry. The palate is powerful and racy, combining suppleness and tight tannins. With a beautiful length in the mouth, this is well balanced and accessible wine.
A champion of longevity. Even when young, Talbot is pleasant and rounded, ever distinguished by silky, mild and very civilized tannins. It’s a racy wine, with complex marks of Havana and licorice, classically delicious without ever the slightest hint of austerity.
Its colour is a beautiful bright red, the nose is very aromatic with notes of red fruits, liquorice and spices. All the maturity of cabernet sauvignon is felt in the mouth with silky tannins that associates with the roundness of the Merlot. The palate is dense. A beautiful fruity length, this wine marks down by its balance and structure.
Dark colour, bouquet of raspberry, blackcurrant and cherry. Fruity taste with soft tannins, pleasant finish. Aged in oak barrels, 100% Merlot (old vines).
“Wonderful blend of syrah, carignan and grenache with a reddish-black colour. (…) flawless structure with a light wood aroma (…) garrigue, peppermint and fresh, acidulous blackberry soften the strong tannins. With Marie-Pierre Iché’s personal touch, the baron becomes a prince.” (Guide Hachette 2017, vin remarquable)
50% Carignan, 40% Grenache noir, 10% Syrah
