Jeannie Cho Lee April - 2013
Jeannie Cho Lee
Less sweet than the 1990 with firmer structure and more vegetal notes with roasted herbs. There are well crafted layered flavours here with good length.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
The 1988 Talbot is dark ruby, with a well-focused personality brimming with spicy, chocolatey, blackcurrant, leathery, herbal fruit buttressed by good acidity and high tannins. In the mouth, the wine has a game-like, smoky, beefy character. If the tannins fade a little and the fruit takes over, this will be an outstanding wine.

A round and velvety-textured '89 just starting to reach its peak. Slightly rustic. Dark-ruby color. Blackberry and dried red berries. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a chocolate, plum aftertaste.

Château Talbot, on the other hand, was already clearly mature. On the nose it had balsamic notes, ripe pears, Christmas spices but no hint of Bret. On the palate it was medium complex, well balanced, with melted tannins and a light structure. Overall, it was a bit harmless but not inconsistent.

Older wine with ruby red colour tinged with brown. Big stinky barnyard nose, reeking of burnt rubber. Creamy palate, but a grilled meat, beef character. There is sweet fruit around the edges and a long, spicy finish. Some strawberry, cherry fruit developing, but also vegetal, briary notes hanging on.

Typical Cordier funk nose with a touch of barnyard, cassis, black fruit, tobacco and a hint of rhubarb. Decent texture, but not much elegance or excitement. The wine delivers more on the nose than the palate.

Bright bricky garnet. More evidently leafy than the Langoa, and that makes it smell younger, still of blackcurrant leaves and capsicum, even lavender, though there is a light meatiness. Not as long as the Langoa but richer than I expected from the nose. There's still a slight grip in the tannins and I wonder if there always will be. The tannnis may well outlast the fruit. After an hour, more liquorice on the nose and perhaps just a little dry on the palate but not dried out.

At Chateau Talbot, wine combines past and future. Respect for traditions and technological developments will live in perfect harmony. From the union of technical, regional and men who operate with passion, sprang wines of character, harmonious and complex. st reached in twenty years to be among the most popular wines of the Bordeaux region.  . It is undeniable that Talbot is one of the most famous wines of the Medoc. This good reputation is probably due to a mysterious combination of several factors: the size of its vineyards, nearly one hundred acres, the regularity of its wines, for nearly a century in the same family, the name of Talbot short and punchy , easy to pronounce in all languages and is part of our history ... But what makes the popularity of first Talbot is the wonderful nature of its wine. "Talbot is for many the ideal of St. Julien, generous bouquet, very stable and safe in Aging and stress Bettane Desseauve in their Grand Guide des Vins de France. True, Talbot is a champion of life, but that did not stop even in its first youth to be nice and round, always marked by silky tannins and sweet, very civilized. Talbot, an outgoing nature, he never turned in on itself, and has the courtesy to be every day in good mood. It is a racy wine, with complex notes of liquorice and tan, delightfully classic without any restraint. .  .
