Notes
Medium red-ruby. Roasted plum, iron and smoke on the nose, along with a faint herbaceous aspect; distinctly more evolved than the '00. Supple and sweet, with nice texture and balance but modest complexity. Still, this offers more give than the tougher '98, and the tannins are nicely ripe.

Château Talbot

Château Talbot

Talbot’s history is rather more interesting than some of its wines... Named after the Earl of Shrewsbury, John Talbot who suffered defeat and death at the hands of the French which resulted in the Bordeaux vineyards being repatriated after 340 years of British rule.

Today, this 4th growth St Julien estate produces solid and well priced wines, but is rarely spectacular. Those who have tasted the 1982 and 1986 vintages (under Cordier control) will testify to their excellence; sadly these feats haven’t been repeated recently.
