Too young.. Need a least a few more years..
Robert Parker 90 Points A strong effort for Talbot, the 2005 is more showy and forward than most wines of this vintage. While there is plenty of tannin, it is sweet and well-concealed behind an intriguing bouquet of sweet herbs, licorice, smoked game, black currants, and cherries. This fleshy, medium to full-bodied St.-Julien exhibits a silky sweetness to its texture and tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+. Wine Spectator 91 Points This displays blackberry, sweet tobacco and green coffee aromas. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a caressing texture. This has a really lovely mouthfeel for the vintage. Best after 2014. 35,750 cases made.–JS
Elegant, smooth and charming. lots of black currant and tobacco.
My Rating 84: this is a very dry balanced wine with no outstanding features. If you never drank bourdeaux you will be disappointed. the nose is restrained ,earthy not overpowering. Paying $ 60 is nuts and should be left up to rich Chinese people.
Robust Bordeaux with great structure. Still had strong tannin and lots of pepper. Fruit was a bit muted but still very enjoyable.
It's my gut feeling that the 1986 is, along with the 1982, the finest Talbot made at this estate since the legendary 1945. The fact that there are 40,000 cases of this wine is good news for the consumer, as there will be plenty to go around. The wine, which has been so special since the first taste from cask, is classically structured, with a penetrating fragrance of peppery, spicy, weedy black currants and tar, an enormous concentration of flavor on the palate, and staggering length. The tannins are noticeable, but they are ripe tannins, somewhat softer than those found in many of the 1986 Medocs. In comparison with stablemate Gruaud-Larose, the Talbot is more developed and flattering to taste today. This should prove to be an extraordinarily long-lived wine, and, as are virtually all the Cordier wines, a marvelous value for your money. Last tasted, 9/97
The wine was good - it was more about the idea (my fiance's 30th birthday with a 30-year old bottle of wine). We didn't let it breath long enough, but who does once the bottle is open?!
External Reviews for Château Talbot Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
Planted to 66% cabernet sauvignon, 26% merlot, 5% petit verdot and 3% cabernet franc. The second wine of Chateau Talbot is generally about half the production. Notes of blackberry, blueberry and Bing cherry mix with earth and eucalyptus on a rather p... Alex Shaw. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Connetable de Talbot 750ml
Dark color of average intensity. Fruity nose of ripe type wine shows smoothness on the palate more evoking merlot than cabernet sauvignon. Medium length. Will be delicious while young. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com
This is very fine for the vintage with a lovely blueberry and currants and spice character. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and a pretty finish. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Talbot 3000ml
This impressive estate owes its name to Connétable Talbot, Commander in Chief of the English army and gouvernor of Guyenne, beaten by the french army at the famous Battle of Castillon in 1453. Château Talbot is in an ideal location a short distance from the Gironde estuary. The vines grow on fine gravelly rises, which alone are capable of producing the region's great wines. Talbot is one of the most ancient estates in the Médoc. The château has fortunately passed from one competent manager to another over the centuries, and is fully worthy of its classification in 1855 as a great growth. The Cordier family has owned Talbot since the early 1900s. Several generations of the family have shown their deep understanding of the importance of quality. Traditional methods are used alongside the most modern ones. The interplay between man and nature, and an age-old understanding of this outstanding terroir, combine to make wines that are different every year, but unfailingly well-balanced and complex. Five hectares of the Talbot estate are given over to producing a dry, crisp, elegant white wine, Le Caillou Blanc
Bright ruby-red. Slightly rustic aromas of musky black raspberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, leather and game. Sweet, glossy and pliant, with lovely intensity and lift to the flavors of dark cherry, cherry pit and spices. Hints at the horsey qu... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

"Copious black currant, olive, unroasted coffee bean, forest floor and underbrush characteristics are present in this attractive, dark plum/ruby/purple-tinged offering. One of the lighter-styled 2011 St.-Juliens, the well-made Talbot can be drunk over the next decade." --Robert Parker*Robert Parker rating: (87-89 pts.)**We will notify you on arrival summer 2014.*
