Chateau Talbot Saint-Julien

Wine Description

(1996 Vintage) Lots of blackberry, licorice and light tar aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish.

    It needed about 45 min to open. Had nice tannins and a finish that changed in complexity the longer that it decanted. Could taste the notes thoughout.

    (1983 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Deep mature colour with lovely ripe fruit and well-bred, mature characters on the nose. Lovely, supple and velvety on the palate with real harmony and breeding. A fine 1983
