Château Talbot 1996, Saint-Julien

‘The wine is close to being outstanding, exhibiting a saturated dark ruby color, and excellent aromatics, consisting of black fruits intermixed with licorice, dried herbs, and roasted meat smells. It is full, with impressive extract, a fleshy texture, low acidity, excellent purity, and a long, deep, chewy finish. This 1996 will be drinkable at a young age, yet keep for 15-20 years. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2017.” 89 points. Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate


‘A classic style; not a blockbuster. The nose is quite evolved and shows lovely leafy, cedary fruit with a pronounced mineral edge. Lovely balance on the palate. Drinking well now but still showing some savoury tannic structure on the finish, suggesting it could evolve yet further. Very good excellent.’ Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak
