Talbot from Saint Julien is one of those underrated Chateau in Bordeaux. Still they have been making really good wines over the years. The 2000 vintage is one of their highlights.
This wine is drinking beautifully now. 30 minutes of decanting is enough to reveal hints of black currants, cedar wood, smoked ham and pencil shavings. It is full bodied, the tannins almost fully integrated.
This great effort from Talbot is fully matured and probably will not get much better.
