Reviews for 2009 Talbot Bordeaux Blend

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2012
Initially generous the wine then becomes much more solid and dense. The structure is all there along with the ripest fruit. It is delicious and darkly tannic at the same time. R.V.

Extremely sexy soft supple and opulent with notes of cedar herbs incense and black currant fruit this is a full-bodied generously endowed but silky Talbot to drink now and over the next 20+ years. By any standard of measurement this is irresistible.

Dark plum and blueberry compote notes lead the way followed by dark cocoa and tobacco. A fleshy feel runs throughout with a stony edge adding length and balance on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2021.

Slightly rustic aromas of musky black raspberry black cherry dark chocolate leather and game. Sweet glossy and pliant with lovely intensity and lift to the flavors of dark cherry cherry pit and spices. Hints at the horsey quality typical of this chateau but boasts terrific enveloping fruit and noteworthy sweetness. Finishes with broad plush tannins and excellent length. One of the top few Talbot vintages of the last 25 years.

Notes of mushroom damp wood and earth dominate the nose backed by notes of blackberry and espresso aromas. Big but very closed at this stage the tannins are grainy and tightly wound lingering on the palate but still not overpowering the fruit. Give this 8-10 years to come into balance and drink it over the next two decades.
