Chateau Talbot 2005


Chateau Talbot 2005 - This dry, velvety smooth, medium-body red was still youthful with fruity aromas and flavors of cherry and black currant along with tobacco and licorice notes in the rich, slightly spicy, lingering finish. Delicious right now though you can certainly continue to hold it.

I bought this bottle a few years ago but it is still available in limited quantities at Spec's in Houston as well as on-line. This Grand Cru Classe wine comes from the prestigious Saint-Julien commune of Bordeaux from an outstanding vintage.


Consumed at a family dinner on 12/24/16 and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
