TALBOT ANNOUNCES SPECIAL EDITION BOTTLE FOR THE 2018

Talbot 2018 bottle (wide).jpg

This week Chateau Talbot has revealed that the 2018 vintage will be marked with a special commemorative bottle design.  To celebrate the 100th year of the acquisition by the Cordier family, 2018 Talbot will come in silkscreened bottles with a special design that recalls both the pillars of the cellar and the roots of the vines.

Chateau Talbot follows in the footsteps of other special edition bottle releases from Mouton Rothschild (2000), Lafite (2008), Angelus (2012) and Smith Haut Lafitte (2015).  These vintages are seen as landmark moments for the Chateaux, and have become collector’s editions with increased interest and prices on the secondary market.  It is likely that the 2018 Talbot will follow the same pattern with Bordeaux already reporting higher prices for the vintage.

2018 Talbot comes highly recommended as one of their best yet, and their first under new management (Jean-Michel Laporte formerly of La Conseillante).  We can offer our last few cases at opening price:

Please let us know if you would like to secure a case or two.

There is just more body and presence to this Talbot compared to previous vintages, more tension and grip on the graphite tinged finish. This is very promising not only for this vintage, but for the future of Talbot. Watch this space/château."
91-93pts Neal Martin, Vinous.com

This estate is on a roll and the 2018 Château Talbot might just be the best yet."
93-95pts Jeb Dunnuck

A great St-Julien that reflects the estate more than the vintage - a definite compliment to the winemaking team as well as those 50-year-old (on average) vines that are less swayed by climatic changes"
94 Jane Anson, Decanter

One of the best Talbots in a long time."
94-95 James Suckling
