Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, April 1996, Score: 86-89

The 1995 was tasted three times with slightly different tasting notes, although on each occasion the wine was very good. Whether it merits a mid-eighty point score, or one approaching outstanding remains to be seen. The wine exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, low acidity, more obvious ripeness and jamminess than the 1994, but on one occasion it was too hollow in the middle to justify a top score. In any event, it appears to be a good, approachable, precociously-styled Talbot that should drink well young and last for 10-15 years.All of the wines in this segment were tasted between March 19 and March 28 in Bordeaux. Most of the important wines from both the 1994 and 1995 vintages were tasted three separate times during my ten-day stay in Bordeaux. Drink: 1996-2011.

Producer

Château Talbot

A mark of the significant English influence in Bordeaux, Talbot was named after John Talbot, Earlof Shrewsbury, who fought gallantly but unsuccessfully against the French in Castillon in 1453. For many years, it was a twin to Gruaud Larose which also bore the Cordier label. However, since 1992 Jean Cordier exchanged his shares in Gruaud to take complete control of Talbot. It is now run by his daughter Nancy. Talbot has produced a continuous stream of excellent wines vintage after vintage.

Region

St Julien, Red Bordeaux

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
