Moncharm | Château Talbot 2009
A beautifully full bodied and pleasant affair, the Château Talbot 2009 is an aromatic and flavorful wine that combines the flavors and aromas of dark plum, blueberry, herbs, cedar, dark chocolate and game. Meant to be enjoyed now, this wine will age beautifully for the next 20 years, and get more solid and dense, enhancing its flavors.
According to legend, the estate takes its name from Connetable Talbot, a British soldier who was also the governor of Guyenne, who was killed in 1453. Changing hands a few times over the years, it is now owned and managed by sisters Lorraine Cordier and Nancy Bignon-Cordier, descendants of the Cordier family who bought the estate in 1917. They are now known as some of the finest Bordeaux wine producers.
