Joël Taluau, Cuvée du Domaine Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil 1989

Taluau 1989 #2

Premier Wine Company, Richmond CA.

Mature garnet. Un vin a l’ancienne, he’s tertiary without the rusticity. Shows none of the thunder and excess of the vintage: he’s murmury instead, a serene offering of autumn’s smoke, sous bois and wormwood. Woodland berries at a whisper. The finish is focused, polished and bright. Vigorous all the way through. A wine for whom less is more; he’s not about impact but presence. Now.
