Château Talbot 2010
The blend is 62 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 33 % Merlot, and 5 % Petit Verdot. This is a fabulous Talbot to drink over the next 20-25 years.
One of the best Talbots over recent years, and possibly the best since the 1986 and 1982, this sexy juggernaut of a wine struts forth with an opaque plum/ruby/purple color and terrific notes of creme de cassis, licorice, roasted herbs and smoky barbecue. It is a brilliant effort, with full body, wonderful fruit, a savory, expansive mouthfeel, sensational texture and a long finish, but no hardness or astringency.
