Chateau Talbot 2008
€ 62,92 (in Vat)
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Julien|
The evolved, soft, silky 2008 Talbot is unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage, offering a dark plum/garnet color, loads of roasted herb, berry, black cherry, plum and Asian spice aromas intermixed with an attractive forest floor-like note. Already drinking well, this medium-bodied St.-Julien should continue to evolve for 10-15+ years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (89)
Ripe and rather direct, with a tasty beam of raspberry, blackberry and black currant notes pushed by velvety tannins. Shows a smoldering edge on the refined finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
