Château Talbot Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

9.269 ratings on Delectable
$95

A strong effort for Talbot, the 2005 is more showy and forward than most wines of this vintage. While there is plenty of tannin, it is sweet and well-concealed behind an intriguing bouquet of sweet herbs, licorice, smoked game, black currants, and cherries. This fleshy, medium to full-bodied St.-Julien exhibits a silky sweetness to its texture and tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+. Robert Parker

This is a perfect match with duck and pork. I'm so glad Laura Miller gave Kristy and I an excuse to drink plonk today.

Delicious but still too young. Maybe in 5-7 more years it will be ready.

wine has vigor, deep ruby color, tannins present but well integrated with dark Red fruits and cassis. Medium to full bodied, probably needs another 5 years to put on more weight and gain complexity.

(17/20) Насыщенное, напористое вино с животными ароматами, тонами чёрной смородины, шоколада и специй. Прекрасно сбалансированная структура.

(17/20) Красивый аромат чёрной смородины, ежевики, шоколада, ванили и мускатного ореха. Довольно тельное с умеренной кислотностью и мягкими танинами. Насыщенно ягодное во вкусе. Очень хорошо.
