Chateau Talbot 2011
€ 66,55 (in Vat)
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Julien|
Talbot’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by an attractive, spicy, earthy St.-Julien displaying hints of tapenade, black cherries and soil undertones in a forward, lush, round, seductive style. This excellent, medium-bodied 2011 should provide delicious drinking for 10-15 years. Talbot appears to have succeeded admirably in this vintage.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
This pulls no punches in terms of style, presenting fleshy ganache and tar notes out front, with an ample core of crushed plum and macerated black currant fruit and a long, muscular, tarry finish. A strong showing.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
