Chateau Talbot 2000 Grand Cru Classe - Saint Julien 2 x 75cl / 13%
This lot contains two bottles of 2000 Château Talbot Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux's Saint-Julien appellation.
'This was a strong performance (better than my original notes suggested) by the 2000 Talbot. Close to full maturity, it exhibits a dense ruby/plum/purple color in addition to a subtle herbaceousness intermixed with smoked meats, black currants, licorice, cedar, and foresty notes. Rich and full-bodied with light tannins, and a slightly richer, more savory, broader, deeper style than I remember, it should drink well for 10-15 years. 93/100' Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, tasted 2010
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where they have been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
