Food Pairings for Château Talbot Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
Robert Parker 90 Points 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+. Wine Spectator 91 Points This displays blackberry, sweet tobacco and green coffee aromas. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a caressing texture. This has a really lovely mouthfeel for the vintage. Best after 2014. 35,750 cases made.–JS
External Reviews for Château Talbot Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
Sweet tobacco, berry and currant aromas follow through to a full body, with soft, silky tannins and a fresh, racy aftertaste of currant and mineral. The texture of the tannins is very beautiful. Best after 2016. JS
Tasted single blind at Southwold. One of the best Chandacirc;teau Talbot in recent years with a striking nose of Doris plum and damson, smoke developing with aeration and then ripe blueberry scents. Perhaps it is a bit heavy handed with the oak. The palate has good extraction, sappy black fruit, nice acidity with touches of iodine. It is surprisingly lush and expressive on the finish. This is a Talbot that should motor along nicely for two decades, maybe more. Drink 2011andndash;2030.
Full medium ruby. Very primary nose of cassis, licorice, earth and leather, complicated by an almost exotic note of chocolate. Then suave, broad and dry, with a fine-grained texture and very good palate coverage. Doesnandrsquo;t currently show the lift or intensity of the best Medoc wines of the vintage, but offers a fleshy, solid impression and finishes with fairly sweet tannins for this property.

Very dark with a tiny violet rim. Incredibly thick in the glass. Brown sugar toast over cinnamon on the nose, finishing with a lingering yeasty aroma. Fresh strawberry notes on the palate over hints of fresh green herbs. Nice tannic bite. Fairly well... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Talbot 1500ml
This wine has turned out to be more impressive from bottle than it was in cask. It is a charming, intensely-scented wine with a telltale olive, earth, grilled beef, and black currant-scented bouquet soaring from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, with low acidity, and round, luscious, richly fruity flavors, this is a meaty, fleshy, delicious Talbot that can be drunk now. Anticipated maturity: Now-2012.
