Very dark with a tiny violet rim. Incredibly thick in the glass. Brown sugar toast over cinnamon on the nose, finishing with a lingering yeasty aroma. Fresh strawberry notes on the palate over hints of fresh green herbs. Nice tannic bite. Fairly well... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Talbot 1500ml
Tasted single blind at Southwold. One of the best Chandacirc;teau Talbot in recent years with a striking nose of Doris plum and damson, smoke developing with aeration and then ripe blueberry scents. Perhaps it is a bit heavy handed with the oak. The palate has good extraction, sappy black fruit, nice acidity with touches of iodine. It is surprisingly lush and expressive on the finish. This is a Talbot that should motor along nicely for two decades, maybe more. Drink 2011andndash;2030.
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: 2010andndash;2020+.
Complex notes of fruit, herbs and spice. Restrained yet alluring. A beautifully pitched palate weight, delivering the ripe balance of the vintage in a sleek style. From 2012.
Full medium ruby. Very primary nose of cassis, licorice, earth and leather, complicated by an almost exotic note of chocolate. Then suave, broad and dry, with a fine-grained texture and very good palate coverage. Doesnandrsquo;t currently show the lift or intensity of the best Medoc wines of the vintage, but offers a fleshy, solid impression and finishes with fairly sweet tannins for this property.
The 1986 is quite simply the finest Talbot I have tasted (perhaps the 1945 Magnum I once drank was as good). Deeper than the 1982, more classically structured with the depth and length of a great wine from a great year, the 1986 Talbot is indeed superior. Anticipated Maturity: 1995-2015.
