Chateau Talbot

Grand Vin Saint-Julien 2009


“Extremely sexy, soft, supple and opulent… By any standard of measurement, this is irresistible.” - Robert Parker

One of only ten Quatrièmes Crus Classés, the very reasonably priced Château Talbot has an enormous following. Bought to drink by connoisseurs - rather than as an investment - availability of high quality back-vintages such as this are few and far between. Named after Sir John Talbot, the Earl of Shrewsbury, who was killed in battle by the French just outside Bordeaux which ended many hundreds of years of English rule. Made under the watchful eye of Stephane Derenoncourt in one the appellation’s all-time great vintages, this is dark and polished, displaying graphite, blackberry jam, ripe black cherries, chocolate-covered coffee beans, and liquorice. Classic Claret to be served with Sunday roasts, comfort food and slow-cooked stews.
