This estate owes its name to Connetable Talbot, the English general & governor of the province of Guyenne who was defeated at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453. Aromas of sweet black fruits with flinty notes. On the palate blackberry & plum with cacao and tobacco tones, complex, adding cedar on a well balanced frame. The ‘09 with a bit of age has developed well, fine tannins, lingering ending with fruit and mineral character. Nice!

Loved this. Lots of depth. We tried the 1971 as well which may have had some heat damage. But this was herbal silky wine brought a smile to my face with each sip.

This grand estate owes its name to Connetable Talbot, the English general and governor of the province of Guyenne who was defeated at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453. Complex aromas of fruit and spice with wafts of sweetness. On the palate red berry flavors with sweet tobacco and cacao, full body, well integrated. Soft tannins, good acidity balance, lingering ending with a mineral edge, perfect now.

First wine of ‘18. Bang friggin average. Soupy, dilute. Yields must have been off the charts here in ‘05. Tastes like a $14 Cali Cab. #talbot #bordeaux #stjulien
