2009 Château Talbot - St.-Julien
In-Store Notes2009 Chateau Talbot, Saint-Julien 91 Points, Parker. "Extremely sexy, soft, supple and opulent, with notes of cedar, herbs, incense and black currant fruit, this is a full-bodied, generously endowed but silky Talbot to drink now and over the next 20+ years. By any standard of measurement, this is irresistible."
Château Talbot Description
A champion of longevity, even when young Talbot is pleasant and rounded, ever distinguished by silky, mild and very civilized tannins. Talbot possesses an extraverted nature. It?s never withdrawn into itself, and has the courtesy of being in a good mood every day. It?s a racy wine, with complex marks of Havana and licorice, classically delicious without ever the slightest hint of austerity.
Wine Spectator: 91 Points
Dark plum and blueberry compote notes lead the way, followed by dark cocoa and tobacco. A fleshy feel runs throughout, with a stony edge adding length and balance on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2021.
Wine Enthusiast: 93 Points
Initially generous, the wine then becomes much more solid and dense. The structure is all there along with the ripest fruit. It is delicious and darkly tannic at the same time.
