2009 TALBOT / 大寶

Something about Chateau Talbot

A prestigious Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Château Talbot is one of the essential references of the wines of the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region. The estate oversees a unique vineyard, consisting of a 113-hectare single vineyard. Château Talbot enjoys an exceptional terroir due its Garonne gravel-alluvial soils and its close proximity to the Gironde estuary.

Benefiting from the expertise of Nancy Bignon-Cordier, oenologist Éric Boissenot and consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt, the wines of Château Talbot are among the most famous Médoc vintages that are recognized for their consistent quality vintage after vintage.

As classy, elegant wines, the style of Château Talbot has a generous bouquet that is expressive in its youth and then reveals great depth and complexity over the years. On the palate, these wines decisively display the typicity of the Saint-Julien appellation that is marked with structured, silky tannins. Château Talbot embodies the excellence of Médoc wines in a classic approach, and is far from the clichés of austerity.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

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.

The 2009 Talbot has a refined, red berry nose with scents of leather, damp earth and light cocoa aromas. It just lacks a little power. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, and moderate acidity. Quite fleshy with conspicuous mocha-like notes, although it is missing some depth and certainly complexity on the finish. Talbot? Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. 2020 - 2033

A red with a solid core of blueberry and currant aromas, with spices too. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a balanced finish. Very pretty.

Some development at the rim. Light, graphite nose not without its attractions... Very sweet start but lifted and easy and utterly relaxed. Slightly dry tannins on the end. But very solid effort. Nice neat persistence. Date tasted 1st April 2010. Drink 2018-2030.
