    July 31, 2020 - Popped and poured, and drank within an hour. Nice comparison against the 2009 Branaire Ducru. Fragrant nose and classic Bordeaux flavor. Drinking well now.

    July 31, 2020 - 91-92 pts. No detailed notes but enjoyed more than expected. Might prefer this slightly over the 2009 B.Ducru drank with it.

    July 26, 2020 - Texture!! It’s thick. Pillow soft tannin and lots of it. Otherwise the flavours of left bank claret, not overly ripe, nor particularly fragrant (it’s not Margaux). I guess this is what they mean by St Julien being “textbook” albeit reflecting an unusual vintage.

    July 11, 2020 - Inky dark colour, soft aroma. Soft dry first taste, but then opens into a classic mix of dark fruits, currants, leather, and coffee - in that order. Quick finish but long linger. Not at the top of the 2009 list, perhaps a bit more time (I have another bottle), but a good drink.

    (Chateau Talbot St Julien) This wine has a dark core and a cherry pink rim. On the nose it is dark and slightly gamey, although with some good bright edges. The palate has some appeal, although it carries gamey fruit here also, with some roasted cherry stones. A good upright tannic backbone, rather moderate acidity. Great character but it feels a little soft for me, although it does show a bright acidity in the finish. I suspect this will be a must-buy for Talbot-lovers.

    (Château Talbot (St Julien)) The blend here is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 15% Petit Verdot. Rather an alluring suggestion on the nose, with tinges of tobacco and smoke (from the Petit Verdot, says the régisseur), with notes of floral spice, I find this exciting and seductive. It has the trademark 2009 texture right from the outset, all velvet and cream, silky and integrated. The tannins are buried deep but they are there, and this is a typical finding for the vintage. In the finish it feels very long and tannic. Overall, very convincing. More convincing than my primeur assessment, and it seems to show a more exciting structure than some of the 2009s tasted in London recently. Tasted during a visit to the château.
